    Red Arrow Park existed on the south side of W. Wisconsin Ave. between N. 10th and N. 11th Sts. from the 1920s until 1964 when it and the Tory Hill neighborhood were bulldozed for the Marquette Interchange (1968) that connects I-94, I-43 and I-794. The current Red Arrow Park opened at its current location (920 N. Water St.) in 1970.
