After phase one completed the construction of the playground set, the Town of Gibraltar is now able to put the finishing touches on the new feature at the Fish Creek Beach.
Phase two will feature the soft surface that will go underneath the playground. The town was able to get this money for the surface from a grant that was given by Destination Door County as a part of the first round of the Community Investment Fund grants. DDC gave $15,700 for the surface, which covered the entire cost of the second phase. Town of Gibraltar Treasurer Lisa Cain-Bieri was the one who wrote the grant and talks about when the project will be completed and what factors played into the playground.
Community members that enjoy the Fish Creek Beach will also enjoy the new playground to give kids more opportunities to spend their time while at the beach. Cain-Bieri said bringing the playground back was a big community project as many people wrote letters in hopes for the playground to return.
