MISHAWAKA, Ind. – The city of Mishawaka announced Wednesday that a new plan is being put in place to bring free Wi-Fi to multiple parks across the city. Their hope is to bring internet to every family with a child that is learning remotely.

The School City of Mishawaka, Mishawaka Parks and Recreation, and the City of Mishawaka are coordinating efforts to spend the grant in order to bring Wi-Fi to families.

The announcement was made at Mary Gibbard Park which is one of the parks getting a Wi-Fi point.

“This really couldn’t have happened without a great partnership with the school city which we’ve been blessed with for many years here. Couldn’t be more excited about this. This is a project that we think will not only start here and go to these few parks, including some along the river and Riverwalk. But will also expand to many more parks too as time will go on,” said Mayor Dave Wood.

Additionally, the grant will allow qualifying Mishawaka families without home internet access to take part in the Comcast Internet Essentials program for 12 months.

For more information about the home internet program, families should contact their school.
