Coca-Cola And Subway Want To Give Away Money Towards Parks

Looking for that ever popular park that needs a little TLC, Coca-Cola and Subway want you to tell them which parks should get $100,000. This made me wonder, which parks in Caledonia could use a little sprucing up?

Caledonia has some great outdoor recreational spaces.

But is there a park in Caledonia that could use a little extra help?

Coca-Cola and Subway are looking to give away money for "America's favorite park" and I thought it would be interesting to start a discussion about which parks in Caledonia might fit that bill.

Take a look at our list of parks and recreational areas in Caledonia (be careful because there are a few of them in our directory that are just outside Caledonia). Lets do a little dreaming about what we could do with that money and I'd love to see some photos of your favorite parks.

I'd love to see some of the parks in Caledonia get that money. Click here to learn how to campaign for your favorite park.

Gorney could use some help updating restroom facilities and repairing a portion of the road that leads to the pond that was parially washed out from a storm 4 years ago. Chapla is a beautiful lakefront park but has no amenities. Maple park has almost nothing. Linwood is a beautiful riverfront park but could use new playground equipment and restroom facilities.

I'm looking forward to checking out Gorney this Saturday when I attend a Rally there for Gov. Walker and Van Wanggaard, both whom deserve to beat this nonsense recall.

I agree with Brian on Linwood, but I would add a canoe launch area and adding some additional historic structures, displays.

Keith... Patch (Heather and I) will be there too.

River Bend?

Linwood would be an awesome place for a canoe launch...I was telling Mr. Denise that I wanted to try kayaking.

Way to sneak in that political agenda, Keith.

Denise, there used to be a canoe launch that we installed when I was President through a grant that Wendy McCalvy applied for. Unfortunately, it got washed away in the ame flooding that eroded the road at Gorney.
