The County Board's Parks Committee adopted a resolution Tuesday, March 14, to allocate $27,000 for repairs and upgrades to the Humboldt Park restroom facilities.

The county's $27,000 grant will match $4,000 from the Humboldt Park Friends group and $23,000 from a private account that is funded by a portion of beverage sales at the beer garden.

Improvements to Humboldt Park Beer pavilion include upgrades to restrooms and improved wheelchair accessibility, while maintaining the historical character of the building, according to a news release from the office of Supervisor Jason Haas of Milwaukee County's 14th district.

Haas timed Tuesday's action to ensure that repairs are done before the beer garden opens in May, according to the release.
