Owen Conservation Park

Overlooking Madison's west side, this park was the farm & personal retreat of former University Professor Edward T Owen. Today, prairies & oak savannas have reclaimed the landscape. Coneflowers, goldenrod, and bluestem are among the many plants that yield a harvest of ever changing color & texture throughout the year. X-country skiing in winter.
