Gallery: The Wisconsin Concrete Park Today
The Wisconsin Concrete Park has changed a lot since Fred built his last sculpture in 1964. Sculptures were moved from the Rock Garden Tavern to the east meadow. The 1977 and 1987 storms changed the site from a tree-filled to a more open setting. Highway 13 was raised and a ditch and fence separate the road from the Park. Smith’s barn was wrecked by the 1977 storm and a garage was built in its place. The driveway was widened and parking has been expanded several times. The garage was moved to the rear of the site and is now the Friends of Fred Smith workshop. Additions of the Friends of Fred Smith Studio and public washrooms vastly improve our facilities. The Park survives change!
