- Wausau will soon have a nicer place to watch a ballgame.
The Wisconsin Woodchucks plan a 2.7 million dollar renovation project at Athletic Park.
The plan also includes development of a neighborhood park next to the stadium.
The entire project will be paid for with private funds.
The Woodchucks and the MacDonald family are making the announcement, in partnership with the city of Wausau.
The project will include premium seating and two new luxury suites, as well as a new press box.
In future years, more work will be done.
That will include new bleachers, retail areas, concession stands and new group outing decks.
