The Friends of Nolen Waterfront nonprofit organization was created to help transform the Lake Monona Waterfront project into a reality. We are partnering with the City of Madison to create this signature park for everyone in the community.

Your engagement is critical in continuing to move this project forward. We encourage you to get involved in the project.

Volunteer - committee work is vital to our progress
Advocate - encourage others to find out more about the project
Donate - gifts are greatly appreciated.

Your donation will help achieve a vision over 100 years in the making. Successful implementation of the preferred master plan recommendations will depend on continuing support from project advocates and the private sector. The City of Madison together with the Friends of Nolen Waterfront seek to develop productive, public/private partnerships and identify philanthropic opportunities to realize the Lake Monona Waterfront vision.
