Dane County Parks planning staff has completed a preferred alternative master plan for Badger Prairie County Park. Input from the public and park stakeholders for preparation of the plan has been ongoing since June of 2007. Some of the draft recommendations for changes to the park include an additional shelter area, a new small dog exercise area, improving park access to surrounding neighborhoods (both motorized and non-motorized), improvements to the park trail and roadway systems, a proposed community garden area, a new playground area, updates to the aeromodeling field and proposed park expansion areas. The master plan is available on the County website at http://www.countyofdane.com/lwrd/parks/planning.aspx#master_plans.


A public information meeting to present the plan and solicit input will be held on Thursday, December 3rd, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. in the Common Council Chambers of Verona City Hall, 111 Lincoln Street, Verona, WI 53593. For further information about the upcoming meeting, please contact Chris James, Park Planner at 608-224-3763.
