Plenty of Parks
Sun Prairie has the perfect spring and summertime climate for enjoying the more than 30 parks peppered throughout the city. Whether you like to take a casual stroll, get some exercise, or enjoy a picnic with your family, Sun Prairie's beautiful outdoor nature centers can accommodate you. A walk around Patrick Marsh, a natural wetland, will provide you with ample birdwatching and wildlife observation opportunities. Renstone Park, equipped with a pool, playground softball field, and basketball court, is perfect if you want to get to know other residents while getting some exercise or meet like-minded parents for a children's play date.
Fun for Furry Friends
Fresh air and sunshine are not just for people in Sun Prairie. Not only is the city pedestrian-friendly, it is also a welcoming town for dog owners who prefer to bring their pets along on strolls. This is particularly evident in Sun Prairie's pet exercise area, an 11-acre dog park located about a mile south of the Main Street shopping and commerce area. The park is fully fenced and permits off-leash play, so your dog can socialize with other canine companions. On-site parking, restrooms, and picnic tables are also provided for humans, and several water fountains will help your pooch stay hydrated.
The Scintillating Spe
When summer comes around, engines begin to rev at Angell Park Speedway, Sun Prairie's dirt racetrack. This speedway is well-known around the United States, particularly in the midget car racing community. Here, you will see the small cars compete in weekly races every summer, even at night. Angell Park draws visitors from all over the Madison area, and serves as a community hub during the warmer months of the year. If you would like to learn a little more about the cars to prepare for a race, the speedway is also home to the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame and accompanying museum.
