Cherokee Marsh - North Unit Parking Lot

Last Updated: 11/10/2016

The City of Madison is continuing with improvements at the North Unit of Cherokee Marsh Conservation Park!  Construction on a new gravel parking area and trailhead located off of N. Sherman Avenue first started in fall 2015 and has been completed this fall, along with construction of a rain garden / storm water capturement feature, privacy berms and path connecting the parking lot to the improved trails at the south end of the conservation park.

Work will continue in spring 2017 to restore the construction area with native prairie plantings at the berms and along N Sherman Avenue and wetland plantings at the rain garden site. The City of Madison held a public input meeting regarding the project on January 21, 2015.

Below is a summary of the meeting, along with the exhibits that were presented at the public input meeting:
