Madison’s parks are among our most valuable community assets. There remains tremendous opportunities to enhance parks – particularly those near our beautiful lakes – with amenities that attract more visitors and offer more opportunities for local businesses. When people visit the outdoors, they protect the outdoors. Ensuring that our parks are welcoming, safe, and engaging places should remain a top priority.

Businesses serving Olbrich Park as well as Wingra, Brittingham and Marshall park boaters have been popular and successful. We should look for opportunities to expand innovative approaches to revitalizing city parks.

Madison is a leader in making sure our parks are accessible to children of all backgrounds and abilities. As mayor, I will make sure every child can enjoy beautiful, fully-accessible parks.
