City Council Expected to Vote on Bay Beach Upgrades

Updated:
Green Bay -

The Green Bay City Council is expected to take up plans for major upgrades at Bay Beach Amusement Park tonight.

The Green Bay Parks Committee says their plan would completely transform Bay Beach. It's a three-phase project with a $20 million price tag.

The big part of the first phase would be the Sea Dragon ride.  It would hold up to 60 riders and swing to a height of 56 feet.  The ride would be completed in the next two years.

The first phase also includes a rental shelter for events and later a Ferris wheel, playground, board walk, ice rink -- and possibly more rides.

Friends of Bay Beach Board have already pledged $5 million.

Ticket prices for the rides are not expected to change.

The proposed plan and the purchase of a big new ride were both approved by the Parks Committee last week, and it is expected to go before City Council for final approval tonight.

Action 2 News will have updates as they become available.
