This is a favorite park in town since it has a great walking bridge with a beautiful reflection and a fantastic place to go ice skating in the winter.

We enjoyed the art show and food here for a free event. It's also fun to watch the boats go through the locks from one lake to another.

Public park with lots of open areas, plenty of parking, a small beach that looked pretty clean & lots of pier space to watch boats, people or just vegg out. I bet this is a gorgeous place to be at sunset!

A beautiful little park with plenty of water. Excellent skating in the winter and good tennis courts in the summer. Great place to rent the building for family/work picnics.

Great park in the city. It has a beach, playground, picnic tables, a pond for ice skating in the winter. It also has a locks for boats to pass from Lakes Mendota to Monona. What's not to like? A park for everyone.
