Shorewood Center promotes outdoor activities for students, public
GREEN BAY (WLUK) — The site of a former golf course on UW-Green Bay’s campus is getting new purpose. Campus officials say the former Shorewood Golf Course has been converted into an outdoor adventure recreation center.
More than $400,000 has been invested into enhancements for the center.
Officials say the change promotes student wellness and engagement.
The center will serve the campus and the public by providing outdoor equipment rentals. It will also provide workshops and seminars. Administrators say the change is more-cost effective than the former golf course and offers more of a variety.
“What would it take for the golf course to come back? What a great question. I will say to you we have transformed, so for us, we’re moving forward. We’re going to keep this student engagement center, we’re going to keep expanding on our outdoor adventures,” said Corey King, vice chancellor for Inclusivity and Student Affairs at UW-Green Bay. “I think this opportunity now provides even a greater array of activities and opportunities not only for our community but for our faculty, staff and students.”
The outdoor portion of the center will be completed by fall 2022.
