Spring 2015 - Dogs in Parks Pilot Program Madison Parks would like your assistance in establishing a pilot program for 2015 continuing through April 1, 2016, by identifying 10-20 additional parks that dogs on a leash may be permitted. There will be standard rules established for these selected parks such as dogs must be on a non-retractable, 6 ft or less leash and remain within 6 ft of the designated path. These rules will be monitored and strictly enforced by park rangers at these pilot parks. Click the link below to take the survey.
Currently, dogs are welcome in the following City of Madison Parks - provided the dogs are ON-LEASH. Please be sure to use the posted signs in the parks as the most current dog area information. Please remember that dogs are not allowed in any non-designated park, children's play areas, beaches, athletic fields, conservation parks, or in any park building. During the winter dogs are not permitted on groomed cross-country ski trails.
