Over the past several years, PEAK and Milwaukee County Parks have collaborated to design a park master plan that provides an equitable, vibrant space for local youth to engage, learn, and lead. Last summer, the master plan was announced and construction work commenced to expand the indoor facility for youth services and improve amenities and safety features as part of a revitalization of Tiefenthaler Park. This project was made possible by the Kellogg Family Foundation.
“Our young people need and deserve an incredible space that matches their worth, and our goal for this project from the beginning has been to make Tiefenthaler the most vibrant park and program space in the city," Schiller said. "We are all excited to open the doors of the PEAK program center to the community and its next generation of leaders."
Construction on the project was led by Milwaukee-based CG Schmidt, and architectural design was provided by HGA.
