“Great spot, any time of year”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

Madison hosts several great parks and this is no exception. Great views. Walk out on the rocks and in summertime, catch boats transferring lakes in the locks. You might also catch people fishing by the locks. Look closely in the churning water and you will see some enormous fish.

“Lake locks in the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

Was a fun time just hanging out at the locks waiting for boats to be locked between the two lakes. We walked out on the "pier" and watched boats out on the lake. Like all the parks in Madison, WI; it is a family park with so much to offer.

A very picturesque spot on the lake for a wedding. The new shelter house was great for the reception as well.
