Multimillion-dollar park complex to come to Prairie du Sac

A rendering of the plans for a portion of Culver Community Park

PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. — A multimillion-dollar community park is coming to Prairie du Sac.

Culver Community Park, located north of Sauk Prairie Road, will take up 67 acres near the Westwynde neighborhood. The $12 million park is expected to open in 2023.

The park will feature year-round amenities, including multi-use fields, ball diamonds, an ADA inclusive playground and a fishing pond, among other things. In addition to the recreational spaces, the park will also have a large event building and a rental kiosk where visitors can rent ice skates, sleds, tennis equipment and more.

“The comprehensive outdoor recreation plan completed five years ago states that the Sauk Prairie area is 42 acres short of community park land,” said John Lehan, Friends of Sauk Prairie Parks and Recreation Vice President. “In tracking the use of our current athletic fields, they are being overused two and a half times the recommended usage rate, showing that Sauk Prairie area would benefit from a new community park.”

Craig and Lea Culver, co-founders of the Culver’s restaurant franchise, have chosen to sponsor the naming rights for the new park. Culver’s is headquartered in Prairie du Sac.
