Despite rain, Alumni Park opening brings smiles, excitement

UW-Madison’s new Alumni Park opened at a special ceremony on Friday, and the rain failed to inhibit enthusiasm for the new green space and story park that’s been under construction for more than a year. Exhibits tell the stories of more than 200 alumni, and there are 7,877 trees, shrubs, grasses, and perennials planted in the park’s 1.3 acres. Best of all, there’s a new statue of Bucky Badger, gazing out at Lake Mendota. Check out the PHOTO GALLERY
