Information: 608-266-4711


Located in downtown Madison, James Madison Park is no stranger to busy city life. Yet these twelve acres offer users an area ideally suited for refreshing the body and mind. The basketball courts, volleyball court, and playground are popular destinations for students and other isthmus residents. On nice days it's not uncommon to see at least a few pick-up games of soccer and Frisbee in the open grassy area. Other people, often with bikes laying next to them and heads propped up with backpacks or briefcases, come to the park to nap, read and unwind from the day's stress under the big shade trees. The park is also home to the historical Gates of Heaven Synagogue, which provides a beautiful location for weddings and other gatherings and complements the park's peaceful atmosphere. Whether you're in the mood for a friendly volleyball match or just a break from city life, treat yourself to a visit to James Madison Park. Alcohol is not allowed in this park.
