Made possible in part through a $40,000 donation from Badger Meter, a new park opens along the Milwaukee river shoreline.
The park features a disabled-accessible boat launch for canoes or kayaks as well as scenic views of native prairie grass, wetlands and oak savannas along the riverfront.
As the only park of its kind in the northern stretch of Milwaukee County, Badger Meter River Park will give residents public access to 270 feet of Milwaukee River shoreline.
"We are excited to celebrate the opening of this park in our home of Brown Deer. It has been a pleasure working with the village to put together this community resource that will be enjoyed by many for years to come," said Badger Meter President Rich Meeusen.
