Dane County budget includes improvements to Schumacher Farm County Park
Parisi's budget provides $200,000 for upgrades
MADISON, Wis. — Around $200,000 in improvements could be coming to a county park as part of Dane County Executive Joe Parisi’s 2017 budget proposal, according to a news release.
Parisi Friday announced the improvements to the Center for Rural Heritage at Schumacher Farm County Park near Waunakee, which will include accessible walkways for people with disabilities, visitor parking lots and improvements to storm water infiltration areas.
“Schumacher Farm County Park is a wonderful place to visit,” Parisi said in the release. “I am happy to be able to improve access for the facility and partner with the Friends of Schumacher Farm County Park to update the facility.”
In his 2015 county budget, Parisi allocated $200,000 for construction of restrooms, flooring and heating inside the center. Both projects are expected to begin construction next year.
