Ready-Mix Concrete Specified for Award-Winning Community Park

The Mead Witter Foundation purchased a vacant parking lot along the riverbank in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, and transformed it into a vibrant community park. Taking advantage of the beautiful Wisconsin River, rolling landscape, and downtown neighborhood, the Mead Witter Foundation turned the unused space into a stunning asset that will celebrate the community’s history and serve residents for generations.

"Wisconsin Rapids has long been known for its riverside greenspaces thanks to the vision and relentless effort of former generations who settled here," said George Mead, the foundation's chairman. Recognizing this heritage, the Mead Witter Park features over 3,500 plants, and many of the trees include scannable QR codes to educate visitors about the environment.

County Ready Mix supplied more than 200 cubic yards of ready-mix concrete for the project. Poured to form winding pathways and inviting seating areas throughout the park, the ready-mix offers all the durability and sustainability advantages of concrete. The park received recognition in the Wisconsin Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s 41st Annual Concrete Design Awards in the Special Merit Education, Healthcare & Public category.
