The Sugar Creek Park benches & equipment project provides the growing number of visitors and campers with places to sit comfortably and gather around the playground equipment and also near Sugar Creek. This is one of the three remaining historical camping sites on the Great River Road and is frequently used by bicyclists traveling Highway 35 en route to New Orleans, St. Louis and even Prairie du Chien. Daily, during high season, visitors use the park to pull off and have a picnic, let the kids run and also to just sit, have a cup of coffee, and chat.
Sugar Creek Park is also home to the Market in the Park Farmers Market held every Saturday from May to October each year. Families and groups frequently reserve the two pavilions. Two to four more picnic tables are needed, and two of the large flower barrels were swept away in the 2013 flood, so they are on the list of equipment items as well.

The CCTC works to promote Crawford County and the tourism economy. Programs of the CCTC include the Driftless Area Art Festival, BRAVE Ride, Kickapoo River Cleanup for canoeing, Driftless Wisconsin website (www.driftlesswisconsin.com).
