Background
In 1955, 2.68 acres of public parkland were dedicated to the City of Madison as part of the Orchard Ridge neighborhood development. This parcel was named Orchard Ridge Park and staff have begun a master planning process to guide future programming and development on the site. Parks staff are seeking comments and ideas from the surrounding neighborhood regarding the future of the park, and will hold at least two public input meetings and issue a community survey. Once the master plan has been developed, incorporating input from the neighborhood, the plan will go to the Board of Park Commissioners for approval.
