The general public is invited to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at noon on October 12, 2021 to celebrate the completion of new amenities at Kenosha County Veterans Memorial Park. Following the program, attendees can take a self-guided tour of the property.
“As its name suggests, Kenosha County Veterans Memorial Park is dedicated to honoring veterans while also emphasizing environmentally sustainable living, education, and recreation,” Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser said. “This park will serve as a tribute to veterans, and a center for the whole community to gather, reflect and recreate.”
Development was partially funded through the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program. Upgrades include a new park entrance off Highway F, an Honor Plaza and parking lot, and about three miles of multi-use trails.
