Here’s a first look at the new signs that will be going up at Old Settlers’ Park in downtown West Bend.
There will also be signs on the Recognition Wall to thank organizations in the community for their support.
Among the names you’ll see include the Rotary Club of West Bend, Johnson’s Nursery, Roots & Branches, Prudence Pick Hway, West Bend Germanfest Volunteers, Downtown West Bend Association, West Bend Business Improvement District, Larosa Landscape Company, Leadership West Bend, and In Memory of Mike Sheehy.
The grand reopening of Old Settlers’ Park is June 1.

Remodel is on for Old Settlers Park in downtown West Bend: It’s like a Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys mystery, “The destruction of Monkey Island.”
I you haven’t been downtown West Bend recently the park isn’t going to look the same at all. Crews are busy leveling the park on the triangle corner of Sixth Avenue and Main Street.
Last week the Parks Department removed all the trees, engineers came in and pulled out the electrical and the public address speakers, the old railroad ties, along with trash cans and park benches.
Later this week, Kevin and Amy Zimmer will remove the gazebo. They had the winning bid of $18.45; that purchase was approved Monday night by the Common Council.
The city is fixing up the park with grant money received from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation. The work will be finished by the first Music on Main concert in 2016.
