Tear the dam down. It really serves no purpose. Return the river to its natural state so the salmon and the rest of the life on the river can return to use the river as nature intended. I would donate to that. Free the river!

Thank you for doing this cause! I heard that this pond used to be used as a ice ring. Is that in the renovations plan?

I am proud to support this cause as it's been a staple in almost every single South Milwaukee kid for so many years. It's a treasure and makes Grant Park beautiful and needs to be saved. Please donate!
