Last year, Friends of Grant Park received a generous donation in memory of Ronald Henriksen, who was a resident of South Milwaukee. After much discussion, FoGP worked out all of the details of how the donation could be used. The result is that FoGP matched the donation amount to have a very nice wood bench installed near the limestone steps and main bridge of Seven Bridges. The installation work was completed in early August.
To match this, another local resident (who wishes to remain anonymous) has donated funds for a steel bench to be installed overlooking the lake near the bike path, between area 2 and 5 parking lots. This bench has not yet been installed.
