Friends of Peninsular Park

The Peninsular Dam has been a point of controversy in Ypsilanti for years.  Some, like climate change activist Beth Gibbons, believe it should be demolished.  Others, like Margery Dosey of the Friends of Peninsular Park, want the dam repaired and preserved.  Both Gibbons and Dosey present their arguments in this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi" with WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg.

You may not know much about Peninsular Park in Ypsilanti, but a newly formed "friends" group hopes to change that.  

 

Friends of Ypsilanti's Peninsular Park meets for the first time Wednesday evening. 

Bob Krzewinski is a member of Ypsilanti's Parks and Recreation Commission, which established the group.  He says the group's goals will include organizing volunteer clean-ups at the park off Leforge Road.
