Cultural Commons enriches the beautiful Wisconsin riverfront and offers opportunities for involvement and understanding

Learning about the history of Stevens Point is fascinating for visitors as well as community members. A casual stroll along the Wisconsin River provides an opportunity to enjoy this precious natural resource while enriching understanding how this beautiful city of Stevens Point came to be. Similar to a river, as history progresses, so does the outreach of a community.

Cultural Commons Project Launches Website & Fundraising Campaign

The Cultural Commons Project Committee launched www.spculturalcommons.com today. The Cultural Commons site was designed to provide additional insight on the project. The content on the site is very comprehensive and includes the project vision, architectural drawings, animated video, donation information as well as information on the partners working to make this project happen. The site will also serve as a resource for those wishing to donate to the project.

The Cultural Commons project has been proposed by four community organizations as a “point of beginning,” which will link our area’s early history to our ties beyond our city boundaries. The Cultural Commons will be a garden and education green space within Pfiffner Pioneer Park.  Located just north of the lagoon and the Riverfront Art Gallery, and south of the bandshell, the Cultural Commons will blend into the natural environment at the riverfront.  It will be an inviting place for all to relax, learn, and celebrate.

The Cultural Commons is an idea by a collaboration of community groups to create a space in the area where Crosby Avenue turns north at the park, just west of the western driveway to the Chase Bank parking lot.
