Harvest Park

Five years in the making, a vacant strip of city block has evolved into the tourist attraction that is Harvest Park: an icon to which out-of-towners attribute one of the reasons they remember stopping in Reedsburg.

Park achievements:

  • Quenched the curiosity of over 100,000 visitors
  • Enriched the community’s agricultural history and culture
  • Won national and state Awards
  • Served as a stop for artistic events including the Farm Art DTour and Reedikulus Arts Crawl
  • Hosted several events including a free public concert, Cider stand, and Native Arts Fair
  • Home to historical and memorial signage for Millie Zantow and Dolly Madison Dairy
  • Provides shade and art for rest and reflection
  • Direct connection to Chamber for visitors via the artistic Corn-themed Crosswalk

– and this is only the beginning!

We are raising funds for the fourth and FINAL phase of the Harvest Park project, which includes landscaping to define the edges of the park.  Developed with community input, we plan to add flowering trees and shrubs designed to provide a background for the artwork and screening along the west and north sides of the park.

To date, we’ve raised nearly $7,700 of our $17,800 goal for the final phase.  We would be most grateful if you could help us with a donation in 2019 to finish the park.

Thank you so much for considering this.  I am happy to meet with you to explain this phase of the project in more detail.

 

Sincerely,

Jan Aslaksen
