Your Support Makes an Difference

Madison is home to 279 unique parks, which residents and visitors of our city enjoy every single day. They vary in size and shape; they’re housed in a multitude of neighborhoods featuring wide arrays of amenities, some quite simple and others more complex.  But there is one constant that bounds all of these parks together in commonality, and it’s this intangible element that provides a most important and beautiful sense of unity – Memories.  Madison Parks have created and continue to inspire memories for all, generation after generation.


Whether it’s taking your puppy to the dog park for the first time, looking onto your granddaughter’s excitement as she plays in the splash park, enjoying a game of softball with friends, or simply soaking in a beautiful day after a family picnic, Madison Parks are there to proudly serve as memory makers.


With a donation to the Madison Parks Foundation, you will be a part of continuing this legacy for future generations.  We hope that you’ll help us continue to carry out a mission that a group of local Madison citizens helped create more than 125 years ago with the establishment of The Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association.  All funds raised by the Madison Parks Foundation go above and beyond taxpayer dollars in an effort to take our parks from great to outstanding!


We use proceeds to create accessible playgrounds, plant trees, host & support many free community events, conserve local wildlife and institute scholarships which give children the opportunity to learn to golf, ice skate, swim, fish, bird watch, skateboard and so much more.  The Madison Parks Foundation will be there along the way to ensure that our parks, their amenities and the programming that takes place will not only continue but improve and progress because of the support of people like you.


We hope that you would consider a tax-deductible gift to the Madison Parks Foundation to help us Renew the Legacy!
