Fassbender Park

Kaukauna High School’s Civic Engagement Class is working to revitalize Fassbender Park, located at Quinney Ave. Thanks to a generous donation from The David and Rita Nelson Family Fund, this project is starting to take shape. When complete, the park will include LED trees, as well as real trees, and an amphitheater (see images below). The Kaukauna Cheese Crock will stay with the park, along with new a statue of Electa Quinney. Click here to learn more about Fassbender Park.
