JoJo's Jungle - Playground and Splashpad
Rettler Corporation provided master planning, site design, engineering, permitting, and construction observation services to assist the City of Wausau Parks Department with the development of this community supported and privately funded playground project. In 2015 Patrick Hoerter began working with Rettler Corporation to develop a plan and capital campaign to honor his late son Josiah by developing Wausau's first all inclusive playground. In 2020 the fundraising goal of $2.4 Million was met and construction of the facility began.
The primary development program as part of these improvements to Brockmeyer Park include an all inclusive playground and splashpad areas for all ages. Amenities accompanying the new playground equipment is pour-in-place surfacing, overhead shade structures, decorative concrete plaza’s, donor recognition areas, butterfly gardens, natural native landscape plantings and connectivity to parking and regional trails throughout the park.
