Biking in Madison Parks
Bike polo is a team sport, similar to traditional polo, except that bicycles are used instead of horses. In recent years, the game known as "Hardcourt Bike Polo" has grown in popularity. The courts (bike polo and tennis) are located on top of the Madison Pump Station building.

Madison Bicycle Adventure Trail Network
A recommended strategy identified through research and data analysis as part of the 2018-2023 Park and Open Space Plan is to improve connectivity to enhance access and create a comprehensive system of greenspace connections. Madison Bicycle Adventure Trail Network is a way to connect multiple smaller trail segments in green spaces such as parks, greenways, and stormwater parcels throughout the city. Adding to this momentum, Madison Parks received a matching funds grant for $20,000 from the International Mountain Bicycling Association to develop a trail concept plan connecting greenspaces throughout the city. Through research and public input in spring 2020, Madison Parks and IMBA will host a series of public input meetings. Learn more>>
