This is the fourth year of planting trees at the new park in an effort to turn the farm field into a wooded park setting. Additional development now under way at the new park includes the engineering design for site improvements and storm management for the Phase 2 portion of the park.

The Phase 2 development will include a road extending approximately 1,000 feet into the park, a parking lot and building pad for a future park shelter. Drainage swales and bio-retention facilities will also be included.

The Sheboygan Falls Park Board has also started a community tree nursery program. The program is designed to start tree nurseries throughout Sheboygan Falls utilizing available park space and other “open” public spaces.

The program seeks community volunteers, service groups and families to plant and care for small trees in these public spaces. Once the trees reach a reasonable size, some of them will be transplanted to city parks or other public spaces.

The program developed out of a need for more trees at the new city park and also to replace many of the ash trees that will be lost to the Emerald Ash Borer in the near future.

The first family to volunteer to be part of the community tree nursery program was Brett, Kerrie, Mason and Aiden Schmahl. On April 30, the Schmahl family planted 15 maple and oak trees at the city’s K-Meadows Park, located on the southwest side of Sheboygan Falls.
