Chippewa Falls looking to upgrade parts of Irvine Park

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Chippewa Falls Parks, Recreation and Forestry is looking to upgrade parts of Irvine Park. 

City officials said the Irvine Park bandshell is in desperate need of repairs to fix the roof, and remedies water damage.

The Chippewa Falls Parks and Rec Committee wants to make sure the 96 year old structure is still there for its 100th anniversary.

"The city continues to be able to operate this park for free because our community, it’s the community, steps forward with their gift of time and money to keep this park a free park," Chippewa Falls Park, Recreation, and Forestry Director Dick Hebert, told News 18. 

They await estimates on the bandshell repairs, and hope to have it repaired by next spring. The committee is also looking to replace the entrance pillars, initially estimated at a cost of $22,000. The committee said the project will be funded by public donations.
