GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay could soon have another Ferris wheel.

The Green Bay Parks Committee plans to discuss whether to accept a donation of a Ferris wheel from the group Friends of Bay Beach. The committee meets next Wednesday, July 12, at 4 p.m.

This comes during a citywide effort led by Mayor Jim Schmitt to improve the waterfront.

Last summer the city received a grant to work toward putting in a beach, pier and boardwalk at Bay Beach.

The city is also working to put in new concession areas, with a goal of having them open in time for the amusement park's 2018 season.
