Coughlin Park Coughlin Park is Winneconne’s newest park facility, nestled along the canal that leads to the Wolf River on Washington Street. Thanks to special funding, this unique setting offers two beautifully constructed wheelchair accessible piers, and a canoe and kayak launch that offers quick access to our wonderful local waterways. The specialized piers were funded locally by Winneconne Thrift & Gift, and by a matching grant from the Americans with Disabilities Act, with local land owners also sharing a corner of their property for the park to become a reality. There is also a handicap accessible porta-potty kept on-site. To learn more or rent these facilities: click here to check out the Village of Winneconne website.
