NEENAH, Wis. (WBAY) – The City of Neenah wants to hear from the community about the future of Arrowhead Park.
The city would like to make improvements to the park at the south end of Little Lake Butte des Morts. The city now has access to a full 30 acres following the demolition of the Fox Valley Energy Plant.
The land is seen as both a gateway to the downtown and a transition from the downtown to the waterfront.
A public meeting will be held Wednesday night at 6 p.m. at Neenah City Hall.
Ideas include a dog park and economic development.
Michael Kading, director of Parks and Recreation, says this is land is unique.
“It’s not often that you get 30 acres on a lake of public park land. If you look up and down the Fox River, you’re not going to find too many opportunities where the public has access to either Little Lake Butte des Morts, the Fox River or even Lake Winnebago,” Kading says. “I think that’s what’s really neat about this project.”
Again, the public meeting is 6 p.m. at Neenah City Hall.
Another public meeting is planned for Nov. 9.
