Picnic in the Park

Join us in celebrating 122 years of Madison’s crown jewels – its amazing parks, as well as the inspirational individuals who helped create them. These include visionaries like John Olin, Daniel Tenney, Thomas Brittingham and Edward Owen, whose efforts, leadership and support have given us places like Tenney Park, Brittingham Park and Owen Conservancy — places that define our great city, places that brought pleasure to our grandparents and will someday bring pleasure to our grandchildren.

Step back in time and enjoy an elegant evening in Tenney Park, with fine food and drink and historical entertainment. We will also announce our exciting new plan to share the history of our amazing parks with those who enjoy them.  Register
