New dog park to open next year in Dane County


MADISON, Wis. — Construction is about to begin on a 40-acre fenced-in dark park in Dane County.  Dane County Parks will begin construction this July at Anderson Farm County Park in the Town of Oregon, according to a news release.  It will be the county’s third largest dog park.

The park will include two parking lots, an electric vehicle charging station, stormwater basins, restrooms, and limestone walking paths through restored prairie.  A paved trail will also be constructed parallel to Union Road connecting the new dog park with the existing Arthur Sholts Memorial Woods and the adjacent neighborhood in the Village of Oregon.

“Anderson Farm County Park is a popular park in Dane County, and we are excited to add a dog park to this outdoor recreation destination,” said Dane County Executive Joe Parisi.

The new dog park is scheduled for completion sometime in 2021.
