Thank you for entering!

We’ll be announcing our grand prize winner in July, so check your e-mail to see if you’ve won.

In the meantime, explore all the ways to get on the water in Middleton:

Go boating or paddling on Lake Mendota. Marshall Boats has a fleet of new kayaks, canoes, paddle boats and pontoon boats for rent. If you have your own boat, you can launch at the Lake Street Boat Ramp, Mendota County Park Boat Launch or Marshall Park Boat Ramp.

Relax lakeside. Grab drinks and a bite to eat at Captain Bill’s, a seafood restaurant that sits on Lake Mendota. Mendota County Park also offers an excellent lakeside view, as well as a swimming area, volleyball courts and campground.

Walk, bike or run the creek corridor. The Pheasant Branch Creek Corridor is a slice of wilderness right in the middle of the city of Middleton. This 1.37-mile long paved, two-lane trail is ADA-accessible and features a scattering of benches so you can stop and soak in the sounds of the bubbling creek. There are several access points, including entrances on Century Avenue, Deming Way and Park Street.

Visit our conservancies. Middleton has more than a dozen natural areas with nearby water. Spend a day discovering them all, or pick one and set up for an afternoon picnic.

Splish and splash at the Splash Pad. In the summertime, you’ll find water on land, too—just head to the Splash Pad at Lakeview Park. The Splash Pad is open 9am to 7pm daily, from Memorial Day through Labor Day. There’s no deep water to worry about—just colorful water features that keep kids cool and entertained.
