Nestled on the western edge of Lake Mendota, Marshall Park is not far from the city of Middleton. While the park appeals to a number of boaters because of its location and the high quality of its launching area, it also attracts a variety of recreational, park enthusiasts who come to bike, fish, swim, picnic, play volleyball, or simply relax. With a small though charming sandy beach (the children's favorite), a surrounding of old growth, deciduous trees that lend a welcoming shade on a warm, summer day, and a string of open, grassy spaces, one of any age will find something to remember and cherish about this particular city park.
Since 2017, thanks to our partnership with Marshall Boats, park visitors can experience Marshall Park and Lake Mendota like never before. Boat rentals, including pontoons, a cafe and lessons are available.
The sculpture Mildred, was created to celebrate the intellect, moral strength, and political conviction of Mildred Elizabeth Fish Harnack and was dedicated in 2019.
Mildred Fish Harnack was an American woman from Milwaukee, who attended UW Madison. She moved to Germany, completed a Ph.D. in Literature, and moved to Berlin with her husband Arvid Harnack. The Harnacks and their friends formed a resistance group and worked to help the Allies defeat the Nazis. They were arrested by the Gestapo, and sentenced to death.
