How can the Parkway enhance the visitor experience? Take our survey

We’ve been hearing from members of the public in meetings and from online surveys about the wide range of unique experiences and adventures available to visitors and residents along the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway. From the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River, Parkway communities offer waterways and trails for recreation, and opportunities to connect with our rich river heritage.

We want to hear from you, our supporters, citizens and benefactors. How can the Parkway better support local economic development and motivate new and repeat visitors to our region?

Please take five minutes to join us in this conversation and provide your input by answering a few questions.

Take our survey, “Enhancing the Visitor Experience.”

The information collected will be used to develop the Economic Impact Plan for the Parkway. This plan will compliment the Interpretive Master Plan, also in progress, by focusing on the economic revitalization and tourism development aspects of the region. It will evaluate the economic and tourism resources present throughout the Parkway and formulate a means to utilize these resources to enhance economic development for the region. This plan began in January 2012 and will be completed this December.

Thank You!
