Madison, the capital city of Wisconsin, ranks as a top community in which to live, work, play and raise a family. Madison is nestled between lakes Mendota and Monona.
Lake Mendota is the largest of the Yahara Lakes. Its watershed covers 9,781 acres with a maximum depth of 83 feet. Mendota is a glacial lake that formed 15,000 years ago. The northernmost of the four Yahara chain lakes, Mendota strongly influences water quality in downstream Lakes Monona, Waubesa and Kegonsa.
Marshall Park is nestled on the western edge of Lake Mendota. The park not only attracts a number of boaters because of its location and the high quality of its launching area, it also appeals to those who come to bike, fish, swim, picnic, play volleyball, or relax. There is a walking path from Marshall Park along Lake Mendota that goes past the North House.
