Winter in Madison Parks is a time for fun. There is nothing better than ice skating on a crisp winter day at Vilas Park - and hearing a lion roar in the distance! Winter is a time for racing down the hill on your son's new sled. It is a time for building snowmen and memories with your daughter.

Don't hibernate this winter, come out and play in Madison Parks!
As the temperature drops, the fun just gets started!
