August 2015 Brittingham Park Update:
The weeds in Monona Bay will be addressed with weed cutters in late August/early September by Dane County's Land and Water Resource Department. The walls at the boat launch (near the Brittingham Boathouse) will be removed to improve access for the weed cutter. The modification of the boat launch is scheduled to occur next week.
