KAUKAUNA — The newly revitalized Fassbender Park in downtown Kaukauna will be unveiled during a special ceremony beginning at 2:15 p.m. on Oct. 15.

The project was spearheaded by the Kaukauna High School’s Civic Engagement Class thanks to a generous donation from The David and Rita Nelson Family Fund.

The park on Quinney Avenue include both real and LED trees along with a new amphitheater.

The Kaukauna Cheese Crock will stay with the park, along with new a statue of Electa Quinney.




Hubert Fassbender opened the Kaukauna Cheese Company in 1918 and built Fassbender Park at the former location of Kaukauna Cheese.

Fassbender created a ceramic crock that he used as a container for his products. A representation of this crock was built and placed in the park. This crock will remain in the park to maintain the Kaukauna Cheese legacy.
