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.

Even though the County has yet to formally purchase River Bend, the group that plans to operate the facility has already started to figure out what needs to be done.
Big plans are being made for the River Bend Nature Center. Volunteers interested in seeing River Bend continue operating learned about the work that needs to be done -- fund-raising and cleaning up the place. A meeting, led by Roger Chernik, was held last night. Chernik heads a group called River Bend Nature Center Inc., the group that will operate River Bend once the Racine County Board approves the county purchase. Currently the YWCA owns the property.
