County Board Funds New Playground for Cathedral Square Park
"I hope that Milwaukee County's investment in Cathedral Square Park can be a catalyst that brings more dollars and improvements to what I and many others consider our town square."
“I hope that Milwaukee County’s investment in Cathedral Square Park can be a catalyst that brings more dollars and improvements to what I and many others consider our town square,” said Supervisor Nicholson.
Cathedral Square Park is also one of Milwaukee’s most popular downtown parks, with 200,000 to 250,000 visitors each summer.
A recently formed Cathedral Square Friends group has envisioned both short-term and long-term improvements for the park. Cathedral Square Friends raised over $16,000 to install 20 hanging flower baskets this summer that have beautified the park at no expense to Milwaukee County.
Dozens of “friends” groups provide support for Milwaukee County parks through fundraising and volunteer efforts.
