Brittingham Park
829 West Washington Avenue

The Lake Monona shoreline that now makes up Brittingham Park was once so neglected that a speaker at the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association (MPPDA annual meeting in 1904 called it a "disease breeding hole."  It was weedy, littered with kitchen garbage and dead fish, and a breeding ground for mosquitoes. He pointed out that ninety percent of the travelers to Madison saw this bay as they either entered or left the city by rail.   He proposed the development of a park on Monona Bay.1
