"This 56-acre conservation park is laid out along a glacial drumlin, or small hill, not far from the eastern shore of Lake Monona. It is a wonderful spot for a quick escape from the noise and distraction of the surrounding urban environment, with paths leading through woodland, savanna, and, most notably, ponds and marshes that are home to a wide variety of waterfowl.
Algae grows thick and green in two large ponds, and grasses and cattail sprout from the muck. Purple aster bloom alongside the path as well. Canada geese, cranes, ducks, and herons have all been spotted on the waters.This is a nice spot to pause and reflect."
