Parks and Recreation

The City of Madison is proud of its 220 plus acres of park and recreation facilities, which include an 18-hole golf course, neighborhood parks, tennis courts, a beautiful municipal pool, ball diamonds, football and soccer facilities, a municipal campground, a sports complex, and a city gymnasium.

The Madison Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide essential services, facilities, and programs necessary for the positive development and well being of the community through the usage of the parks, greenways, trails, and other recreational facilities. While working in cooperation with other recreation service providers in the community, we seek to maximize all available resources in a sustainable way. From baseball leagues to swim lessons, a groomed golfing course and riverfront campground - Madison Parks Department has a lot to offer its residents and helps increase the number of green spaces in our area while simultaneously cultivating an active community.
