Pauquette Park

Pauquette Park (900 West Conant Street) – 9.2 acre park located at the West entrance of the City along W. Conant Street and Highway 33. This park is the most picturesque park in Portage. Pauquette Park bears the name of Pierre Pauquette, a famous fur trader/translator for the French and Native Americans who operated a ferry from 1828-1857; a marker is located near the Pauquette Park sign on the north side of the bridge to pay tribute. Originally used as a brickyard, Pauquette Park was later dredged to form Bridal Pond. William Armstron, owner of "Armstron Brick Yard" obtained this land from the U.S. Government in 1869 and used it to produce bricks for the construction of homes in Portage. Attorney Charles H. Hall donated the land to the City of Portage in 1924. This park contains the rentable Beasley Pavilion, home to Concerts in the Park, two additional shelters, restrooms, electricity, recreational trails, basketball court, gazebo, playground equipment, flower gardens, walking path a
