Galesville park undergoing major renovation

An area park is getting a much needed makeover. 

A local group is hoping to turn Reception Park in Galesville into a community hub for the public.

The goal is to add new bleachers and dug outs, along with a new concession stand and gathering area.

The first phase of the project is being paid for by money from the CapX2020 project.

The rest is being paid for by the community which has come together to help see the project through.

The pride the community has in this park and just the feeling that ya, lets gets something done with it, that’s been overwhelming and people have come to the table to say you know we’ll donate money we’ll donate our time,” said Keith Braunreiter of the Reception Park improvement committee.

The whole project will take about 5 years to complete.
