In truth, we owe it all to an extraordinary civic effort of ordinary Madisonians doing remarkable things. Three decades before Madison had a municipal parks department, public spaces were purchased, developed and maintained by the private citizen members of the Madison Parks & Pleasure Drive Association.
These gifts created some of Madison’s most popular and charming public spaces and established a citizen tradition of private support for public parks.
Today, that legacy and tradition are renewed by the Madison Parks Foundation.
Your contribution will make a real difference.
