Many changes and improvements will be underway at Higley Park in Marinette this Spring. The city will install new ADA playground equipment. Also in the works is the construction of a splash pad at the Civic Center pool. But first, the Parks and Recreation committee had to inspect their master plan and finances. Parks and Recreation Executive Director Gavin Scray says, “As we plan for playgrounds, parking lots, and other things. I’m asking that we resort back to the master plan that was given to us as we make our decisions as a committee.”

Scray says, “we have funding to purchase the playground equipment.”

According to Scray, the city is not looking to make major changes at Higley Park, but they want to improve what they currently have; and make it more user friendly for the citizens of Marinette.
