Sturgeon Bay park holds ribbon-cutting

STURGEON BAY – City leaders and tourism officials believe residents and visitors will have even more reason to visit Graham Park on the downtown waterfront than before.

After a little more than two years of work, the remodeled park at the East Side foot of the Maple-Oregon Bridge officially reveals its new features with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. Friday, June 3. The public is invited to attend.

Before the project to redo the park broke ground in June 2020, it was mainly a green space in front of Center Pointe Marina with a walkway along the Sturgeon Bay canal and a few tables.

Now, Graham Park’s look includes an amphitheater with seating that was built last summer where visitors can attend acoustic music performances and other events or simply relax in a quieter space. There also are concrete pingpong tables, cornhole/bag toss games and chess and checkers tables where people can play for free (those also have been up since last summer) and flower gardens.
