Projects & Planning Information
Yahara Riverfront Project (Whitewater Park)
We are exploring the possibility of building a whitewater park in Stoughton. This would include a riverwalk and trail extensions, rental facility in Mandt Park, and an in-stream whitewater park. - More Information
Mandt Park Pickleball Court
The Mandt Park pickleball court has been constructed. The court was made possible by generous donations from the Lions Club and the Bryant Foundation. Fencing will be installed in the spring of 2019.
Yahara River Trail Extension
The Yahara River Trail extension project extends the Yahara River Trail by 1300 LF. The trail can be accessed by the disc golf course at Amundson Park and Stoughton Hospital has a public trail that connects to Ridge St. The trail is 90% finished as of the fall. Restoration of the trail shoulder will be done in 2019 which will complete the trail extension project.
Nordic Ridge Park Opening
Nordic Ridge Park is now open. It is located on Hoel Ave on the west side of the city. The park currently has a shelter and and the city’s first splash pad.
Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan
Every five years the city undergoes a planning process that updates its CORP. The CORP provides a road map for future decision-making. The plan also makes the city eligible for state grant funding for parks projects. The plan is scheduled to be approved by city council later this year.
