Prairie Moraine County Park

Featuring the Johnstown Moraine and a portion of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail along the northern portion of the site, this 160 acre park provides an excellent opportunity to experience Wisconsin’s glacial history. A scenic overlook offers views from the narrow crest of the moraine of the restored oak savannah and surrounding landscapes. A portion of this park is also one of Dane County’s off-leash dog exercise areas with extensive trails and mowed play areas.

For more information on vegetation management at this park, please view our presentation (PDF).
