Middleton Public Lands, Recreation & Forestry worked with Aro Eberle architects on a project to improve the shelter at Lakeview Park. The shelter, originally built in 1972, has served the park and visitors well over the years. There were concerns about restroom access and conflicting uses that had the City considering improvements to the facility. At the February 18th Common Council meeting bids were awarded for the renovation and expansion. Construction has recently finished as of October 23rd, 2020. Check out the new shelter below!
Lakeview park shelter is now accepting reservations for dates after May 15th, 2021.
The bathrooms at Lakeview Park & Taylor park remain open.
The nets have been taken down for winter.
Announcement! The state requires face coverings to be worn in park shelters and their amenities. This includes wearing a mask to use the restrooms. You are not required to wear a mask on outdoor equipment such as playgrounds. We are not taking shelter reservations.
