Winner, winner


The nominations went in, the votes were counted, and… WE WON!!

Winnebago County Parks & designer Rettler Corp. have been awarded the WI Park & Rec Assoc. 2018 Park Section’s Park Facility Award of Excellence for the Community Park Road Redesign Project.

The award will be presented at the WPRA Annual Conference in Green Bay on November 1. Projects substantially completed within the past two years were eligible for consideration.

We are grateful to the nomination committee and of course the esteemed judges who chose our project from among the many other eligible nominees.

This award is bittersweet, as Landscape Architect Jeff Bahling from Rettler Corp., who had been the designer for the Community Park from 1995 on, passed away unexpectedly and at a very young age, in 2016. His vision and skills helped to make this project a tremendous success!

This one’s for you Jeff!

The following is a summary provided with the nomination.
