Elver Park on Madison's far west side has long been our favorite hill to come for winter sledding. It's a long, steep hill which makes for very fast sledding. PLEASE make sure you climb back up the hill to the far right, NOT up the...More

Went with my niece and nephew to play in the snow and it was a blast. Definitely a great place to enjoy as a family and a fun winter spot to visit.

Ice-skating and sledding? Basketball and tennis? Softball and running? Yes to all. If you have small kids there is less to do in summer unless you want to "climb the mountain" which is the large sledding hill. If you like sports bring your tennis and...More

We had so much fun sledding down this free attraction and warmed up in the warming house too. The facilities were great. Ice skating, hockey and cross country skiing looked fun too!

This city park satisfies virtually every purpose for going to a park. It is not one of those nice flat parks. It has easy walking, running, biking and skiing terrain, but it also has significant hills and wooded areas. This is an A+ park.

We came to Madison to do some skiing and skating. The skiing at Elver Park is definitely geared toward the skating style of skiing. Unfortunately, we were doing traditional cross country skiing. The trails were in very poor condition. A total waste of $14.00. Very...More
