Anderson Farm County Park
Anderson Farm County Park was established in 2014 and is the newest Recreation Park in the Dane County Parks system. The park is approximately 310 acres and is a mix of woodland, agricultural fields and a small prairie that was planned in 2016. It is located in the Town of Oregon at 914 Union Road, Oregon, Wisconsin just south of the Village of Oregon. The park is named after the Lyman F. Anderson Family farmstead that was founded at the site in 1886. Lyman F. Anderson, who passed away in 2005, was a former County Board Supervisor and also served in the Wisconsin State Legislature. There is a modest network of woodland trails on the north end of the Park, including a 1-mile hiking trail through the Arthur Sholts Memorial Woods, which can be accessed from a parking area off of Union Road. Visitors can also walk along field roads that border the agricultural fields. A portable toilet is usually available at the parking area off of Union Road.
The Friends of Anderson Farm County Park host a variety of events and volunteer projects at the park. The size of the park and recreational amenities offered will expand over time -- future park development and designated uses are outlined in the Anderson Farm County Park Master Plan.
