Janesville Dedicates NE Regional Park at November Ceremony

November 11th, 2019

As of the Friday, November 1, dedication ceremony, the City of Janesville’s Northeast Regional park is now officially named Shieffer Park after the former City Manager Steve Shieffer. CORRE is honored to have been a part of the NE Regional Trail Extension Project that will connect two Janesville neighborhoods previously separated by the 87-acre park. The new one-mile-long meandering paved path follows the existing hilly contours of the wooded landscape. The flyover video to the left shows two alternative scenarios that were ultimately combined into one route. Project design included roadway crossing improvements, real estate acquisition, extensive grading challenges, and multiple alternative alignments to address environmental concerns. You can read about the ceremony on the Janesville Gazette. The park will officially open next spring. More park information can be found on the City’s website.
