Fugleberg Park
Carl Fugleberg (1881-1959) served as city alderman, police commissioner, and park board member. His family came from Denmark in 1844 and built a vinegar factory on the land. Carl pledged $1500 in 1933 toward its purchase for a park. The city then bought the land from its current owners, heirs of Dr. Edwin Streich. The park was built up with fill from Depression era Works Progress Administration sewer construction. Carl was third generation owner of Fugelberg & Flister Florists formerly adjacent to the park.
