Alumni Park will also expand public access to the lake, creating a seasonal boat dock and pavilion off the shore north of the Below Alumni Center, home of the Wisconsin Alumni Association offices on Lake Street.
Alumni Park will be paid for with private gift funds from the Wisconsin Alumni Association. The project, the capstone to UW-Madison's East Campus Master Plan, is included in UW-Madison's 2011-13 capital budget.
Creating Alumni Park also complements a separate UW-Madison capital project to rehabilitate the lakeshore near Memorial Union, bringing improvements in safety, accessibility and environmental impact.
