La Crosse is getting closer to having a new park set aside specifically for sculptures.
The park board has approved the concept of what would be called the Nehosto Art Park, just north of the La Crosse River.
City arts board chair Jennifer Williams says the idea has been on the drawing board for some time, and
The name Nehosto comes from a Ho-Chunk word meaning ‘waters come together.’
A similar plan has been talked about for the Friendship Gardens at the north end of Riverside Park.
