Owens Conservation Park Reviews & Ratings
This park is wild forest, there are two small ponds and a creek that runs during the summer provided there is enough rain. There are mosquitoes when it's warm, but not as many as I expected given the available water bodies. The creek is nice and there is a trail along it. There are several trails about 6 feet wide and you can forget you are in a city, actually you can't see much of a city from there and you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside.
A very nice place to come on a nice cool warm day to take your friend's, significant other Or Relatives on a really nice hike. Just make sure to bring bug spray and sunscreen. I personally Have hiked many times alone here and have never had a problem. It's very peaceful!
This is a great park for people who like to walk around in nature. Most of the park has been left to grow, and is very much like it would be in the wild. For those who have kids there is a small play area hidden off to the side as well.
The prairie is like a painting of purple, yellow, browns and greens in August. Swallowtail butterflies and monarchs floating over the flowers; tiny hummingbirds are drinking nectar at the beebalms. Breathtaking!
One of the lesser visited prairie parks in Madison. Large array of trails that go through the open prairie down to the ponds and into the forest. Given not many people come here often its easy to go for a walk in solitude. Cross Country skiing in the winter is great and can be quite fun with the hilly nature of the park.
