Ribbon cut on newest Madison Park

MADISON, Wis. - The city of Madison celebrated the opening of its newest park Thursday. 

Officials braved the rain to cut the ribbon for the grand opening of Thousand Oaks Park, located in the 1000 Oaks neighborhood on Madison's far west side as part of a new subdivision. 

The 15-acre park includes an open field, a reservable shelter, walking paths and a play area. According to city officials, the park and its features are meant to mesh with the atmosphere of the neighborhood.

"The neighborhood is called 1000 Oaks for a reason, and to be able to honor that natural legacy of this space and to bring an active park into this is really pretty phenomenal," said Parks Superintendent Eric Knepp. 

The development and construction of Thousand Oaks Park was a partnership with Veridian Homes and Madison Parks, a release said.
