James Madison Park

With views of Lake Mendota on one side and views of the State Capitol on the other, James Madison Park is a green space that has Madison written all over it. It is a great place to enjoy a picnic, play a game of basketball, volleyball, or soccer. With its open space and stunning views, this 12-acre park is a popular place for students and Madison residents alike to take a break from the busy city life. It is about a 5 minute drive, a 10 minute bike ride, or a 25 minute walk from campus.
