Several paths crisscross through the woods, and this hike takes you around the circumference of the park, with a stop off near the restored prairie. Turville Park is adjacent to Olin Park, one of the most popular parks in Madison. All types hang out here, from pierced and tattooed university students to downtown professionals and families with children, making this one of the best places in the city to hang out and people watch. On weekends in the spring and summer it’s full of locals taking advantage of the warm weather to get outside. There are soccer and softball fields, a boat ramp, a beach, and a very nice picnic area on the shores of the lake. You might want to consider bringing your own picnic for before or after the hike.
