It is unique enough that a YMCA has an 18-acre campus, but the Door County YMCA in Sturgeon Bay also can lay claim to having its very own park. Peterson Park was built adjacent to the “Y” location two years ago and now has added outside exercise equipment this summer, according to CEO and President Tom Beerntsen.
Beerntsen says the exercise equipment is made by one of the premier manufacturers, Greenfield. He also added that Peterson Park is a community park that is available to all people to enjoy regardless of membership. The park which has a walking path and playground is located north of the YMCA building on Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay.
