Explore Lake Wingra

Lake Wingra offers you a magical escape and it is tucked away right in the middle of Madison. Largely protected by undeveloped shoreline, you can hear the sounds of Sandhill Cranes and the dip of a paddle as you discover this favorite getaway.

Protect & Engage

Lake Wingra has an urban watershed. To enjoy each lake season, those who live, work, and play  need to work together to keep improving the health of the watershed. 

Many of these actions are things your can do or advocate for seasonally.
