The Parks, Recreation & Facilities Management Department would like to thank the community, groups, partners, and contractors who have provided their input on improving Appleton's parks and recreational areas.

LOWER TELULAH PARK TRAIL PROJECT

Lower Telulah Park is currently closed to public access from the Appleton Rowing Club building to the Mariott Hotel. Construction has started on the development of a new trail and trailhead parking lot on the west end of the park by the Marriot Hotel. The new trail will connect to the existing trail by the Marriot Hotel and Mr. Brews Taphouse. The project also includes the development of a retaining wall along the river that will include stairs, an ADA ramp for access to the river, fishing platforms, and lighting. The City is planning to install an ADA canoe/kayak launch and a fishing pier in the future. An area has also been cleared by the Appleton Rowing Club building that will be used to store and cap contaminated soils that are on site. The storage plan for the contaminated soils has been approved by the DNR.

Construction is currently scheduled for substantial completion by November 15, 2018. Final site restoration will be completed by May 1, 2019. The City is hoping to open the trail for public use by November 30, 2018.
