Winter recreation enthusiasts are encouraged to take advantage of these last days to enjoy concessions and equipment rentals at the Madison Parks staffed winter shelters. We are rounding the corner to spring and staff will be getting our parks and shelters ready for the upcoming busy season. Winter shelters will close at the end of the day on Saturday, March 9. While the shelters will not be staffed beyond Saturday, winter recreation may continue for as long as conditions allow. Please check the website for the latest.
