Park Details

Hudson Park, located at 2919 Lakeland Avenue, stretches along the shores of Lake Monona, and is complete with 4.75 acres of lake views, ancient mounds, and a bronze memorial dedicated to the Ho-Chunk nation. A Native American artist from the Ho-Chunk nation named Harry Whitehorse sculpted a memorial honoring his ancestors and placed in the park in 1991. The sculpture was created from the trunk of a hackberry tree struck by lightning, and contains carvings of a wolf, bear, cub, lynx, thunderbird, eagle, and a Ho Chunk warrior. The sculpture also overlooks the effigy mounds. The statue was cast in bronze in 2009.
