Board christens green space as Freedom Park

The Fredonia Village Board last week agreed to give the name Freedom Park to a  village-owned green space west of the post office and bounded by Fredonia Avenue on the south and Regal Drive on the north and west.

The other name considered by trustees was Endeavor, which Trustee Richard Abegglen preferred.

The other trustees liked the name Freedom better. Some said it was more appropriate given the village’s proximity to Stony Hill School and its Flag Day heritage.

Abegglen joined the majority, however, and voted to christen it Freedom Park, making the decision unanimous.

The one-acre park was donated by the Emmer family some years ago to the Northern Ozaukee School District, which later sold it to the village.

The site was rezoned from business to parks several years ago. 

The park is largely just a grass-covered open space now, but plans call for erecting a colorful pavilion by summer followed by the installation of walkways.

Grading will begin when weather permits.
