Lake View Hill Park is a conservancy-based park situated uniquely on the grounds of a former sanatorium. The park master plan highlights the environmental benefits of vegetation restoration and management and the cultural significance of the historic landscape associated with the former sanatorium grounds.

The park is perched on a hill overlooking the northside of Madison in Dane County, Wisconsin.  This 48 acre park is the former site of the Lake View Sanatorium, built in 1930 for the treatment of tuberculosis. The property includes twenty-six acres of upper woodlands, fifteen acres of meadows, including the original great lawn, and the original sanatorium buildings that now house Dane County Health and Human Services.

We are sticking with the 1st Saturday volunteer schedule so start your 4th out with a little time (Sat. 10am-Noon) in the woods digging burdock. Meet by where the water tower used to be! Burdock is that plant that starts out looking like harmless rhubarb and ends up with the nastiest burrs ever. Help cut it now before it goes to seed. Tools provided. Plus check out the front fountain now under reconstruction. Lots happening at LVHP! Happy 4th everyone. ... See MoreSee Less
