Festival Foods Partners with Friends of Emerson Park, City of Stevens Point to Revitalize Playground, Basketball Court

STEVENS POINT, WI (OnFocus) – Festival Foods celebrated the grand reopening of its Stevens Point location Wednesday, October 26, with a $2,500 donation to revitalize Emerson Park’s playground and basketball court. The gift was presented during a ribbon-cutting event at the Stevens Point Festival Foods. 

The first phase of the revitalization project will focus on updating playground equipment, and the second will involve reconstruction and relocation of the basketball court. Renovations are expected to begin in November upon arrival of the playground equipment. 

“We’re honored to be part of the Stevens Point community and to assist with the repair and reconstruction of such a popular attraction,” said Mark Skogen, Festival Foods president and CEO. 

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Festival Foods as a community partner in the Emerson Park project,” said Stevens Point Mayor Mike Wiza. “This central city park will be one of the greatest assets of our recreational opportunities, and helps fulfill my goal of no more than a 10-minute walk to a park from any home in the city. We are proud that Festival Foods is playing a role in that.”
