Herb and Dolly Smith Park

Herb and Dolly Smith Park demonstrates the successful transformation of a once blighted area into a popular community recreational asset. The park is located on the site of a former fueling station and undeveloped area on the shores of Lake Butte des Morte. The waterfront park offers amenities to suit many types of outdoor recreation enthusiasts including walking paths with wildlife viewing areas and a canoe and kayak launch with ADA accessibility. Spaced periodically along the shoreline are swinging contemplation benches that draw those interested in a relaxing, peaceful moment.

An attractive park shelter and recreation area was designed around a green space and offers open-air picnic space available for events and festivities. Another central point of interest is the paved bicycle and pedestrian path that will eventually lead to other area parks and the heart of downtown Neenah. In order to avoid sensitive areas and meet ADA accessibility guidelines, this path includes a ravine crossing and a 390 foot long timber boardwalk across the mouth of the Neenah Slough.

GRAEF performed full hydraulic design for the boardwalk structure, ensuring that it meets state navigational and flood control requirements and carefully design around existing creeks and wetlands, while restoring forested areas. Invasive plants were removed and native plants and tall grass prairies were planted.
