The Madison Parks Foundation

Basketballs bouncing. Dogs barking as they play. Children giggling. When you listen to the sounds of our parks, you realize they serve an invaluable purpose in our communities. Parks can create and facilitate a sense of fellowship, a feeling of belonging, and a meaningful connection to the outdoors with our family and friends.
