Accessible Fishing & Boating Improvements

Dane County Parks is partnering with the Foundation for Dane County Parks, Madison Fishing Expo, Wisconsin Fishing Expo, and Access Ability Wisconsin to develop system-wide improvements at county lake access sites. Improvements will create and enhance access to fishing and boating opportunities for all ages and abilities.

In 2019, Dane County approved $300,000 in matching funds for this effort. To support accessible pier projects, donations can be made through the Foundation for Dane County Parks website.
