S tephenson Island provides nature, history, fishing and entertainment.
With pristine picnic
and playground areas along with easy fishing access and a boat launch, Stephenson Island is
the one spot both travelers and locals visit often. The addition of a charming 'foot bridge'
adds to the appeal of this local treasure, allowing safe access from one side offering the
Stephenson Public Library and Tourism Center to the other side featuring the Marinette
County Historical Society Logging Museum and the always appealing Sunset Concert Series
showcased within the Bandshell. Grab your fishing pole, blanket and picnic basket and make
a day of it on this pristine Island. Located on the map pg 29 (I5).
John Henes Park is named for the community resident and businessman
who developed a unique parcel of land known as Poplar Point and gave
it to the City of Menominee in 1907. The park is one of the community's
star attractions and has served as host to school picnics, wedding
receptions, graduation parties and family reunions for more than a
century. John Henes Park may truly be the one place in town that
consistently brings generations of current and former residents together.
Although the park has seen many changes over the years in attractions-
the deer pen, a zoo, a miniature railroad-the park's main road and its
many trails are solid links to that original gift to the city.
