The Graham Park Project

Sturgeon Bay is thrilled to announce the “Graham Park Project”, a private endeavor to enhance the green space located at the foot of the Oregon Street Bridge on Sturgeon Bay’s East Waterfront.


This project is perhaps more important now than it even was when we started talking about the concept over a year ago,” stated Pam Seiler,  former  Executive Director of Destination Sturgeon Bay. “Wide open spaces with beautiful gardens, a custom water feature designed by local artist, Rob Soukup, amphitheater seating for relaxation and intimate artistic activities, and free community games including ping-pong, bag toss, and chess and checkers, all will provide a beautiful backdrop to what we like to call ‘Sturgeon Bay’s Welcome from the Water,’” Seiler noted.

Located just below 1st Avenue at Oregon Street and adjacent to the Oregon Street Bridge, Graham Park is a jewel in the Sturgeon Bay community and part of the former Peterson Builders (PBI) Shipyards. This project is funded through support from the Raibrook Foundation, the Dwight & Linda Davis Foundation, the Rick & Nancy Jeanquart Family, Door County Medical Center, Destination Sturgeon Bay Members, Hi-Tec Fabrication, Bay Engineering, Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding, Fincantieri Ace Marine, and Sturgeon Bay Utilities.

Lars Braschnewitz of Sterling Landscape Design designed the impressive project and has dedicated his company to a 5 year “Adopt a Park” commitment whereby they’ll oversee all maintenance and upkeep of the park to establish all of the plantings and maintain the water feature. Sterling Landscape Design will work with the City of Sturgeon Bay Parks Department throughout the project.
