The 2013 Season is finished. Thank you for a great swimming season. Lifeguards will again be on duty in June 2014.
Please remember that Madison Parks provides the lifeguard services for the Madison Park public beaches and the water quality conditions are monitored by Public Health Madison & Dane County. Please be sure to check Public Health Madison & Dane County Beach Conditions for daily closings and condition reports.
Reminder to all beach and park patrons: Please DO NOT feed waterfowl. There is a strong correlation between waterfowl populations and beach closings due to high bacteria counts. Feeding them only encourages them to stay near the beaches. Also, dogs are not allowed at any of the Madison beaches. Dogs are only allowed in designated dog parks.
