It’s hard to believe I have lived in Madison for 30 years and didn’t know about this park. Not even my grandparents who lived not far from here when I was a kid. This is a park of a natural sort, no equipment made by man, just made by Mother Nature. This park was the last project designed by Jens Jensen, who had a major influence in Door County. We saw his museum there on Washington Island in 2011. He also designed the famous “winding road” in Door County also, which we need to see sometime.
This park was once a quarry, now is a great area for kids to play, and plenty of climbing. For many years the park fell into disrepair and neglect, but in recent years a major restoration has been taking place. I saw the results and was impressed!
