Ahuska Park is located between East Broadway and the Beltline, directly south of Roselawn Cemetery. This 22-acre park has easy access to Monona Drive and the Beltline. It is the site of a weekly Sunday morning Farmers' Market from May through October, as well as home of the Dane County Veterans' Memorial.

The park is primarily flat and open, and is well shielded from the highway by berms and landscaping. Entrance to the park is off of 400 E. Broadway, into a large landscaped and lighted 150-stall parking lot.

Amenities
Ahuska Park contains two finished, full-size soccer / football fields, one of them lit for night games. The football field was re-named Haukereid Field in honor of Pee Wee Football Founder and organizer Maurie Haukereid. The field is now home to the Monona Grove Youth Football program and the Monona Warriors Adult tackle football league.

The park features a lighted baseball diamond, which is home to our local Home Talent baseball team, eight lighted tennis courts, a small playground for young children, a sand volleyball court, and a large shelter with bathrooms that can be rented.

To inquire about renting the Ahuska Park shelter, please call the Monona Parks and Recreation office at 222-4167.

History of the Park Name
The name “Ahuska” is the Ho-Chunk Indian word for “whitewing,” which was the name of the last Ho-Chunk family to live on the park’s land.
