Parks is installing an accessible fishing pier at Vilas Park on Lake Wingra. The pier would be located near the existing parking lot on Vilas Park Drive and extend out into Lake Wingra.  This would be a joint project between City of Madison Parks Division and Building and Construction Trades Council Of South Central Wisconsin.

The City of Madison Parks Division held a public input meeting to discuss this project on  Thursday, January 19, 2017 at Edgewood College.

Construction on the project is expected to begin the week of Oct 2nd with the installation of helical piles and concrete abutment.  All shoreline work is expected to be complete by November 2017.  Over the winter Building and Construction Trades Council Of South Central Wisconsin will install new decking on the existing floating pier and final pier installation will take place in spring 2018.
