The New and Improved Pulaski Park
Years of work have transformed south side park, as these photos document.
The Kinnickinnic River’s renaturalization first started getting attention in 2008, and across my three photo galleries, you can see the past, progress and completion of a cornerstone of the project — Pulaski Park.
In 2017, I took photos of the park when we knew changes were coming, and in 2019, I photographed construction while it was in progress. My daughter Iveliz came along with me for all three of these adventures. I hope you will revisit the first two galleries to really get a sense of accomplishment that is Pulaski Park.
Toward the end of summer, a few weeks after the rebirthed Pulaski Park was open to the public, I explored the park to share a view of what generations can enjoy in the future. The new additions include expanded walking paths, a new bridge, upgraded playground and basketball court, a futsal court and more. Plus, the Kinnickinnic River has been returned to nature and is a river again for the first time in generations for all to enjoy.
I hope all explore Pulaski Park in the upcoming winter and hope to see all enjoy the park in 2021 and beyond, for this was truly a neighborhood project for all to have input and enjoy.
