Thirty years after it was originally built near downtown Baileys Harbor, you can make sure Kendall Park gets the much-needed facelift it deserves.
The park was built near the town hall in 1992 in honor of Kendall Weisgerber, who had passed away tragically the year before. While its tall slide, swings, and giant lion’s head delights visitors and residents alike, the park has seen better days. The Baileys Harbor Community Association and The Playground Group joined forces last year to begin fundraising the $500,000 needed to replace the current equipment with features more inclusive of all ages and abilities.
The effort is especially important to Baileys 57 manager Kari Baumann, who has two kids of her own and the sister of the park’s namesake.
The hope is to raise enough money that they will be able to break ground on the project later this year. Baileys 57 is currently donating eight cents of every gallon pumped at the station to the cause up to $10,000. You can also donate directly to the project by clicking this link.
