Domtar Owned Lands Benefit the Nekoosa Community

The Domtar Nekoosa Mill strives to be a good neighbor to both its city’s residents and those in the surrounding area. One of the major means of doing this is through providing parks, walking trails and even access to the Wisconsin River via lands owned by the company.

The Wisconsin River is a prime location for fishing and attracts people from across the Midwest, and even the country. The city of Nekoosa’s Riverside Park, adjacent to the Wisconsin River, is therefore one of the most popular examples of a site with Domtar connections. The company owns the spacious site near Nekoosa’s business quarter, but through a long-term agreement with the city, allows use of the grounds for public enjoyment. This beautiful setting boasts several amenities, including tennis and basketball courts, baseball diamonds, playground equipment, and even a handicapped-accessible fishing dock. During the summer months, its spacious picnic site is a popular place for visitors to relax and enjoy a view of the Wisconsin River.

John Thompson Park, named for a prominent physician and community volunteer in the Nekoosa area, is another example of a Domtar owned property that is used for the greater public good. The park is located directly across the fence line of the Nekoosa Mill in the main area of the city, and is open year-round.

Recreational use of company lands has always been a high priority for Domtar, and its generous contributions to the community of Nekoosa ensure generations of residents can enjoy the beauty of this scenic landscape.
