New VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES 2019
The Friends of the Parks of Perry are looking for volunteers to help with projects in the Town of Perry’s parks.
The Friends of the Parks of Perry Township, Inc. is a non-profit organization that was established in 2004 to develop and maintain parks within the Town of Perry.
Membership dollars are used to purchase seeds, plants, and equipment for park development and maintenance. Future plans include a newsletter, annual meeting, and monthly workdays in the parks.
The Friends of Perry Parks invites your participation. Please consider joining us to meet and work with your neighbors to help preserve these beautiful areas for future generations. A variety of membership options are available, including a plan whereby residents can pledge eight hours of labor in the parks in exchange for a one-year membership.
The Town of Perry currently has two parks:
Hauge Historic District Park
1399 County Rd Z
Mount Horeb, WI
This park is Wisconsin’s first Town Historic District Park and Dane County’s first Historic Overlay District. It surrounds the Hauge Log Church National Historic Site. The Historic Hauge District Park is located 30 minutes west of Madison on County Highway Z. The park was created to preserve the Site’s unobstructed scenic views, to protect its peace and serenity from threatened development, and to respect the souls buried in its cemetery. Financial support from Town residents and worldwide donors makes this park possible.
The Wisconsin Department of Tourism has begun promoting the Hauge Historic District Park on their State of Wisconsin Tourism website, travelwisconsin.com. The Hauge Historic District Park is now an official Wisconsin tourist destination.
