Park DetailsLocated in downtown Madison, James Madison Park is no stranger to busy city life. Yet these twelve acres offer users an area ideally suited for refreshing the body and mind. The basketball courts, volleyball court, and playground are popular destinations for students and other residents. On nice days it's not uncommon to see at least a few pick-up games of soccer and Frisbee in the open grassy area. The park is also home to the historic Gates of Heaven, which provides a beautiful location for weddings and other gatherings and complements the park's peaceful atmosphere. Whether you're in the mood for a friendly volleyball match or just a break from city life, treat yourself to a visit to James Madison Park.
