The Friends of Potawatomi State Park are pleased announce that thanks to generosity of many donors, fundraising for the handicapped accessible fishing pier is complete.
Working with the Department of Natural Resource, and with the support of the State of Wisconsin, $320,000 has been committed to this significant project. The National Resources Board recognized the community’s contribution at their board meeting on August 14th and the Friends of Potawatomi State Park were presented a recognition plaque by DNR Secretary Nominee Preston Coles. The Friends Board and Wisconsin DNR will now begin reviewing final bids and selecting a contractor.
“Potawatomi State Park has long been the perfect destination for outdoor activities,” said Scott Bader, President of the Friends of Potawatomi State Park. “The Park prides itself as being one of the accessible places for people with physical handicap and for its ability to accommodate those with physical limitations. We are pleased with the support the community has offered and excited to watch the dream of a fishing pier that is accessible to everyone become a reality.”
