July is National Park and Recreation Month and Madison Parks is celebrating all month long! Discover the power of play and adventure in parks through a variety of park events and activities planned by Madison Parks and Madison School and Community Recreation.
For children and adults, play is a vital part of our mental wellbeing, physical health and personal interactions. During Park and Recreation Month, in collaboration with the National Recreation & Park Association, we are challenging everyone to get their play on with your local parks. Discover your play-full side with Madison Parks!
The month kicks off with a free day on the lakes. A Lake Access Permit is typically required to access the lakes through Madison Parks boat launch site. On Saturday, July 1 patrons can enjoy a free, fun day on the water – no permit required!
