Hold your event here: The Friends of Silverwood Park welcome public use of available buildings for civic, cultural, educational and public information meetings of organizations serving the residents of Dane County and the area. Buildings available for rent include the North Shed and the Stonehouse Visitors’ Center. See the Building Use Agreement here. For more information or to make a reservation, contact us.

Photography guidelines: Photography is a wonderful way to enjoy this park and share its beauty with others. We encourage you to take casual photographs of your visit for your personal use. You are welcome to share photos of the park on your social media. The prairies, woods, and historic farm buildings make a beautiful backdrop for professional photography. Professionals who make images in exchange for money are welcome here, but we ask that you help us fund protection of the park’s beauty.
