Vilas Park Beach Accessible Mat
The Parks Division, in partnership with the Madison Parks Foundation, will be installing an accessible beach mat at Vilas Park Beach in 2024. A concrete sidewalk was installed in September 2023 to provide access to the beach mat from Vilas Park Drive. The beach mat is planned to be installed in Spring of 2024.
A beach mat allows access the beach and the water for people with limited mobility or in wheelchairs. The Parks Division installed a beach mat at Bernie's Beach in 2021 which has been well received. A photo of the installation is included at the bottom of this page.
