Madison College dedicates new park


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Area Technical College dedicated a park on campus Friday.

College officials say it's more than just a park, it's meant to give visitors a sense of peace.

The design was inspired by the 9-11 terror attacks. A four foot tall, bronze globe serves as the park's centerpiece. It's surrounded by sculptures of the seven continents.

Student activity fees paid for the project.

It's been twelve years in the making.

The designers see it as a sign of global citizenship and community.
