Dane County cuts ribbon on newest off-leash dog park in town of Oregon

OREGON, Wis. — Fido has a new place to play in Dane County.

County officials on Thursday cut the ribbon on the area’s newest dog park. The 36-acre off-leash park, featuring limestone trails through restored prairie, is located at Anderson Farm County Park in the town of Oregon. It will also include a 2.5-acre small dog area.

“I’ve had three or four dogs, so I’m a dog lover, love to take hikes in the forest,” said Roe Parker, the president of volunteer group Anderson Park Friends. “I have two acres of land, I have a small prairie, I’ve restored that, and I’ve worked in other projects over the years, so this one’s close to home and a big benefit to the Oregon community.”
