Lake View Hill 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 houses the Dane County Human Services Department.

The 2009 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.

Sorry folks - but it is just too wet with more predicted for tonight. No yoga, no bonfire, and likely no drum circle tonight. We hope to reschedule but it might not happen this year. In the meantime, feel free to check out Blue Soul Yoga if you really wanted to get your yoga going! ... See MoreSee Less

Jamie GulsethThanks for the update. I bet the mosquitoes would be unbearable, too. Sounds like a fun event in the future!
