In 1904, Col. William F. and Anna M. Vilas gave land to the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association “for the uses and purposes of a public park and pleasure ground.” In a truly visionary move, the Vilas Family stipulated that the park always be admission free. As the zoo developed within the park, it too remained free. Today it’s an extraordinary asset that few communities our size can claim. Indeed, our Zoo is one of only a few, no-admission, free parking AZA accredited zoos nationwide.
