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.

Lake View HIll Park hosted the Dane County Park Commission last night! The Friends of LVH Park were honored to be invited to present to the Commission on the history of the park and the work that the Friends have done in partnership with Dane County Parks and Dane County Human Services. Friends Board Members Sue Gleason, Nelson Eisman, Dorothy Wheeler (former County Board Supervisor) and Anita Weier (former Madison Alder) presented and then led a walking tour for the Commission. We were pleased at how much the Commission knew about the park and that they had followed all of the changes and challenges over the years. They are also very supportive of park Friends groups and excited about the new Dane County Parks Foundation to help support park improvements in the county. ... See MoreSee Less
