Our parks and open spaces are a part of what makes Madison exceptional.  We owe it all to the extraordinary civic effort of people like the Olins, Tenney, Owens and Vilases, who left a legacy for generations to come.

Private support like yours is essential in creating a lasting legacy.  We ask you to renew this legacy of support making a year-end tax-deductible gift. You can support the parks in many ways:

     -   Give a gift to the Area of Greatest Need

     -   Sponsor an upcoming event

     -   Show your support with a Picket for Parks

     -   Honor a loved one with a picnic table, bench or tree

Contact us for more information about other ways to support Madison Parks! Your tax-deductible support will assist in making park improvements, promote widespread recreational use, and provide overall advocacy for our 266 Madison parks and entire park system.
