Madison has quite a few beautiful parks. Pictured here is the Madison Pool with its awesome water slide, located in Theodor S Slen Park which has beautiful open spaces, and a couple other playgrounds and shelters to hang out in.
Madison is one of several cities in the Upper Minnesota Valley with a disc golf course. It has nine holes stretching 2729 feet and is wonderfully kept and fun to play! It's perfect for beginners as well as experienced disc golfers!
Anyone can borrow discs to use on the course from KLQP-FM, Madison's radio station and the chamber of commerce building
Madison parks aren't just for play, however; you can go there to buy local foods too! The Madison Farmers Market takes place Tuesday mornings from mid-June through early October and is located in the shelter at the end of MN Hwy 40 going east. Stop by to check out vegetables as well as canned and baked goods.
There's more history and tradition to be had in Madison, however. It is home to the Lac qui Parle County Museum which contains many exhibits about the history of Madison, and the other cities in the county. The museum also has a beautiful backyard with restored and replicated buildings. It even has famous Minnesotan poet, Robert Bly's study!
Madison has a wonderful set of annual events! Everything from the Kiwanis block party, and Dragon Fest, Oktoberfest, the Meander Art Crawl, and Norsefest, just to name a few! Events like these are wonderful ways to experience and grow in the Madison community, whether you are just passing through, or coming to stay.
