History of Green Bay's Parks

Ken Euers Nature Area

In January 1976, 69 acres of the Bay Port Industrial Site (also known as Atkinson’s Marsh and/or the Military Landfill) was set aside and dedicated as parkway to be preserved as a passive picnic and scenic overlook with nature trails along Duck Creek to Pamperin Park. This sanctuary and conservancy would help to mitigate wetlands lost to bridge and highway construction.

1981 - The park area was officially named in honor of Kenneth Euers who worked with young people to encourage conservation of our natural resources and was very active in the Brown County Conservation Alliance. Naming was a result of a contest in 27 6 grade public school classes.
