Shelter Details

The Olin Park Pavilion is one of the most popular park shelters in the city. With its beautiful lake and downtown skyline views and open-air style, it's no wonder. The Pavilion, built in 1884, is one of the most historic buildings owned by the City of Madison and was designed by Madison architect David R. Jones as 'Normal Hall' for the Wisconsin Sunday School Assembly. It has gracefully aged and transformed over the years to serve a variety of uses. In 2000, the Olin Pavilion was renovated to better serve the public and to resemble the original 1884 "barn." 

Restrooms are in a separate building with a nearby water fountain.
