Ski Trails - All of the Madison Parks cross country ski trails are now open: Odana Hills, Monona Golf Course, Owen Conservation Park, Elver Park, Olin Turville and So. Cherokee. Elver Park Shelter, 1250 McKenna Blvd and Odana Hills, 4635 Odana Rd will be open for rentals Saturday Dec. 19 and Sunday December 20 from 11a.m. - 6p.m.
Ice Skating - Please stay off the ice! With the large snow fall there are still areas that are inconsistent and have dangerously thin ice. Madison Parks is working hard to improve facilities and will open the rinks as soon as they are safe for the public.Sledding Hills - Conditions are good for sledding. Sledding hills are located in Warner Park, Berkley Park, Olbrich Park, Heistand Park and Elver Park. Elver snow hill will be re-groomed today. Parks Staff reminds everyone to have fun, be safe and respect your fellow sledders. Bring your own sled, wear a helmet, keep a safe distance from others when sledding. Exit the bottom of the hill as quickly as possible. Walk up the hill using the side of the hill. And remember, the use of the sledding hill is at your own risk.
