Vilas (Henry) Park

Vilas Park, located along the shore of Lake Wingra, provides ample green space to do some of your favorite activities. With nearly 46 acres, you can go for a run, play tennis, or have a picnic. If you prefer water activities, you can fish, kayak, and even ice skate during the winter months. It is also next to Henry Vilas Zoo and the UW-Madison Arboretum. It is about an 8 minute drive, 10 minute bike ride, and 30 minute walk from campus.
