"Lakefront Park"

Nestled on the shores of Lake Mendota, James Madison Park is spread across 12.63 acres (5.11 hectares). This downtown park is a popular place for a variety of recreational activities. It is also home to Bernard-Hoover Boathouse from 1915 and the 19th-century Gates of Heaven Synagogue, both listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The synagogue is also among the oldest of its kind in the nation and is a favorite place for weddings of all faiths. Play a game of soccer or a Frisbee on the grassy area. There is a volleyball court and two basketball courts for those who enjoy these sports. Laze on the unguarded beach and gaze upon the beautiful lake. Fishing, canoeing and kayaking are encouraged on the lake waters. With so much to do, don't miss this lovely park when in the city.
