As a Dane County Park, trails and grounds are open from sunrise to sunset, year-round. Dogs are welcome but must always be leashed and owners must pick up and dispose of all pet waste. A charcoal grill is available for public use near the picnic and gardens area. Campfires are allowed with an event permit only.
