Yahara Heights County Park

This 141 acre park was purchased for future park and open space needs and is located adjacent to Cherokee Marsh, the largest remaining wetland in Dane County and in Lake Mendota's Watershed. Yahara Heights County Park consists of over 3,000 feet of water frontage within the upper Yahara basin, providing a wildlife habitat preserve, fish spawning grounds, and a water sedimentation area for Lake Mendota. The park contains a 20 acre pet exercise area, hiking trails, and a canoe and kayak launch.
