Future looks bright for Mich-e-ke-wis Park

City Council discusses the future of Mich-e-ke-wis Park and future plans to bring more people back to the park.

The city of Alpena has it’s eyes on Mich–e–ki–wis Park for new additions and construction in the future to help bring more people back to the park.

At Monday’s city council meeting, the council voted to hire the Northeast Michigan Council of Government to update the 14 year old plan for Mich–e–ki–wis. The organization will gather community input and survey results.

They will take their findings and put together a list of plausible ideas for the park.

NEMCOG will begin their work in January and aim to have a final plan for the park in fall of 2019. Current plans for the park include ideas like an ice rink, ice climbing tower, a winter theatre, disc golf course, and picnic shelter.
