Madison's Central Park

MADISON, Wis. -

Madison's Central Park officially opened Wednesday after years of planning and preparation.

City leaders held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the seven-acre park that stretches about three blocks on Ingersoll Street.

The park will be home to Madison's first skate park, and there's plenty of open space and a stage that can be used for festivals or performances.

"We're going to create a great park. We're going to make history in this park," Madison Alderwoman Marsha Rummel said. "It's so thrilling because it took so long, and here we are."

It took about 10 years for the park to come to fruition.
