MADISON, WI – October 1, 2018: Dane County Parks staff will hold a public information meeting on October 10, 2018 at 6:30pm at the Verona Public Library (500 Silent St. Verona, WI 53593).

Prairie Moraine County Park has a unique cultural and natural history and is one of the most visited and popular parks in Dane County. The park supports a dog exercise area and an important section of the Ice Age Trail that runs along the terminal moraine of the last glaciation.
