WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) -- Wausau's riverfront is getting some more upgrades. A new ropes course and play area are in the works.
The project, part of the ongoing beautification of Wausau's riverfront, will include climbing rocks, fitness equipment, a ropes course, concession stand and a bath house.
"It's a transformation of an area that used to be very blighted, everybody knew how it used to be. And it's just something that's really going to contribute to the future of our city and its success and our sense of being unique on the riverfront," said Wausau Mayor Robert Mielke.
The project is being funded by both tax dollars and private donations. It's set to open in the spring.
