Starting January 1, 2019, there will be some changes in parking in downtown Appleton. The Blue Ramp, the one directly behind the BFK, will be closed. It will be demolished with construction scheduled to start in March. Along with this change, parking rates will increase in the ramps and for metered parking.
Parking is the top complaint we get from visitors. We know that walking a couple blocks with a stroller, diaper bag and toddlers is not at all the same as walking those couple blocks by yourself! And once we add in our beautiful winter weather and busy downtown streets, we have a new set of challenges. We have been trying to work with the City and other downtown organizations to come up with a family-friendly solution for parking. As a family focused organization, we want you and your family to feel safe and relaxed coming to visit! We will continue to pursue new solutions and make sure concerns are heard.
If you would like to talk to us about parking or any other concerns with the BFK, please call 920-734-3226 or email us!
