“Great Fireworks, Frisbee Golf, and Sledding”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

This park has a lot to offer and is a lot of fun. The frisbee golf course is great, the fireworks can compete with Warner Parks, and the sledding hill makes it great to go all year!

“Xc skiing lighted trails”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

Great place to get some skiing in after work! There are flat trails as well as a coupke steeper climbers. Toilet facilities in the warming hut near the sledding hill and a port a potty at xc ski base. Trail passes are inexpensive and require mo advance planning as there is a post for payment on trail. Tuesday nights are ski races with the madnorski club too!

“Largest Park in Madison”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Elver Park is the largest park in Madison. It offers a Frisbee Disc Golf course, cross country skiiing trails (with rentals available), huge sledding hill, ice rinks (with rentals available), walking trails, playgound, two picnic shelters (reserve-able) soccer fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, and softball fields.

If you're visiting Madison in the winter and are looking to get outside, Elver park would be a good place to go. In the summer the biggest draw would be the Disc Golf course or the 4th of July fireworks.

I don't especially recommend this park for out of town visitors, but for locals it has tons of amenities to enjoy!
