Little Lake has been the focus of city attention and dollars over the years, and the City of Sturgeon Bay is now considering the final activity to renew the water area. Little Lake, also known as Bradley Lake, is located in Sunset Park and was once the hub of fishing and enjoyment in the community. The pond has nutrified over time, requiring steps to reverse its aging and bring it back to a viable part of the park. Josh VanLieshout, City Administrator, is pleased with efforts to date and recognizes the need to fund the final phase of this project.
A 2018 capital expenditure is currently being considered by the city and common council to complete the project. Sunset Park has a boat ramp, a children’s playground and a number of paths. The cleaning out of the pond would complete the revitalization of this area which is used often for community events.
