Fondy Farmers Market’s Centennial Celebration & Fondy Park Grand Opening, September 16, 2017
To transform a long vacant lot next to the Fondy Farmers Market into a new eco-park and gathering space, Fondy Food Center worked with the City of Milwaukee’s Environmental Collaboration Office, and several other partners. The Fondy Park has state of the art stormwater management, collecting 83,000 gallons of run-off during a major rainstorm – helping prevent flooding in the immediate neighborhood to keep Lake Michigan clean. The FFM utilizes the Park each week for music and activities. Shoppers, farmers and neighbors use the park’s community designed tables to sit and enjoy their lunch, play a game of chess, watch entertainment on the nstage or their children playing in the grassy commons, or simply to enjoy the new trees, prairie and flowering plants.
The Fondy Park is one of the many stops on the Lindsay Heights EcoTour! Learn more here about solar, local food and climate change adaption as you walk through the Lindsay Heights Neighborhood.
