Exciting News for the Northside Area! – Johnson Park

By April 7, 2014No Comments1 min read

We wanted share more exciting news about things happening in the area of our future northside site. 

The boards of directors of Zilber Family Foundation and the Rotary Club of Milwaukee today jointly announced gifts totaling $350,000 toward the revitalization of Johnsons Park. With this announcement, the $1.23 million final capital campaign phase of the Johnsons Park Initiative, led by the Center for Resilient Cities, has reached half its goal.

… Funds granted by the two foundations will be used to make improvements to Johnsons Park that promote a mix of recreational activities for youth and families, such as football and soccer on improved sports fields, and walking, running and bicycling on tree-lined pathways.  Energy-efficient lighting will allow extended hours of safe park use and pilot the new County standard for park lighting. A performance stage will facilitate community concerts, performances and other gatherings. A bioswale planned for the center of the park will help manage storm water on site.
