Build Rockwell Park, Susan Herro
John and Lavinia Rockwell Park - Parks provide a connection headquarters, safe gathering space, improve property values and include everyone in play! After the Herro family donated the parcel of land at 525 N. Lake Rd., the 517 N. Lake Rd. project launched, turning a proposed condo property into city park space. Raising more than $1.35 million in less than six months, the Save 517 group claimed more than 1,000 unique donors, ranging in donations from lemonade stands to family foundations. “It’s a happy story,” said Herro. Now the new group, Friends of Oconomowoc Parks and Trails, hopes to provide amenities such as a drop off, lookout, proposed restroom facility, kayak launch and grading. More than $700,000 in park funding is still sought to improve the parcel. Mayor Bob Magnus said the dam will be repaired next year and park improvements will follow, pending funds generated.
