Fund For Lake Michigan

the Office of Sustainability’s Fondy Stormwater Park

  • Grant Recipient: City of Milwaukee
  • Amount: $34,625
  • Year: 2017
  • Watershed: Milwaukee River
  • Focus Area: Green Infrastructure

Project partners will convert a large and degraded vacant lot immediately adjacent to the Fondy Farmers Market into a high-profile park space. The site park will include many stormwater features that will capture over 20,000 gallons in any given storm. The finished site will combine stormwater management, multiple garden types, trees, seating areas, public art, a performance stage and extensive signage to create a beautiful, healthy green space for use by Fondy Food Center for market activities and educational events.
