Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway, a 501(c)(3) organization, works with communities along the Fox and Lower Wisconsin rivers to celebrate and preserve our rich and varied river heritage while promoting vibrant and connected riverfront towns and villages.
The Parkway organization serves 45 river-based communities in 15 counties throughout Wisconsin. The Parkway region follows the Lower Wisconsin, Upper Fox and Lower Fox rivers, 280 miles across the State of Wisconsin from the Mississippi to the Portage to the bay of Green Bay. The organization’s headquarters are currently located in Appleton.
The project began as and remains a grassroots, community-driven initiative that focuses on partnering with organizations, businesses and groups to enhance programs and build capacity for historic preservation, natural resource conservation, recreation, tourism and education. Today, the Parkway is working with over seventy partners from various backgrounds and regions to support promotion of heritage assets and tourism planning efforts within the river corridor.
