The vision creates a capstone for the East Campus Gateway that runs between the Red Gym and Memorial Union, from Lake Mendota to Langdon Street. Alumni Park will celebrate what the UW-Madison stands for and allow current alumni to honor those who came before them, show gratitude for the enriched life they have had as a result of their UW experience and help future alumni understand the legacy that will also be theirs.
This special place — the heart of the UW campus — is the backdrop for so many student and alumni memories that make us Badgers to the soul.

Imagine commemorative installations that tell the story of the UW-Madison, its alumni and their accomplishments, their lives transformed through education and experience, service and contributions to the world over 150 years.
Alumni Park will extend the social scene of the Lake Mendota waterfront, create a promenade and greenspace along the east end of the lakeshore, and give UW students and alumni a beautiful new place where they can enjoy their own Wisconsin experience.
Alumni Park will also expand public access to the lake, with a seasonal boat dock and pavilion off the shore north of the Below Alumni Center, home of the Wisconsin Alumni Association, as part of the lakeshore rehabilitation project providing improvements in safety, accessibility and environmental impact.
Alumni Park will be paid for with private gifts from alumni and friends through the leadership of the Wisconsin Alumni Association. We hope you will be a part of the next great thing alumni do for the UW-Madison and our fellow alumni!
