Dog Exercise Area:
The Dog Exercise Area at Nashotah Park is OPEN.
Nashotah Park is located between the communities of Oconomowoc and Hartland, 1/2 mile north of U.S.H. 16 on the west side of C.T.H. C. This 444-acre park is nestled among rolling hills, woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands, offering habitat for deer, waterfowl, and a variety of songbirds.
Nature trails lead through easily identifiable landscape types that were created by the last glacial advance over 10,000 years ago. These landscape types are: a natural lake system, an oak forest, an oak savannah (an area sparsely populated with trees), a cedar glade, a floating leaf marsh, a meadow, a shallow marsh, and a deep marsh. Due to the variety of landscapes, Nashotah Park has an outstanding array of songbirds. The scenery comes alive with different colors for each season. The park continues to thrive in winter for cold-weather enthusiasts who treasure mornings and afternoons spent on miles of groomed cross-country ski and snowshoe trails.
