GREEN BAY- Green Bay’s Packers Titletown District’s upcoming developments are scheduled for a fall opening. The public park and plaza are slated to open in mid-September, and development is well underway. The district, which is near Lambeau Field, will soon feature a 10-acre park, complete with a sledding hill, ice skating pond, a game area, several playgrounds, and a football field.

The Green Bay Packers Titletown District is barreling toward a fall opening of its public park and plaza.
“Of all the aspects of the Titletown District, I think the park and plaza is unique. A private developer would not have as much space devoted to a park and plaza,” said Mark Murphy, Packers president/CEO, during a media tour of the site on Tuesday.
Titletown District is a 35-acre commercial, recreational and residential development immediately west of Lambeau Field. Its anchors include Hinterland Brewery, which opened in April, Lodge Kohler hotel and spa, scheduled to open July 18, and Bellin Health Sports Medicine & Orthopedics clinic, scheduled for a July 25th ribbon-cutting.
The 10-acre park and plaza part of the district will include a sledding hill and ice skating pond, promenades, adult game area, playgrounds and an NFL-sized football field. The first phase focuses on six acres of the public space and includes each of those features.
“We have two to four acres that are not designed yet,” said Ed Policy, Packers vice president heading up Titletown development. “If anybody has any ideas, we’d love to hear about them.”
Much of the park and plaza is scheduled to open in mid-September.
The centerpiece of the park is a snow-tubing hill and ice-skating pond and trail, which are scheduled to open in late November, when colder temperatures will make it possible to make snow and ice.
