On Point

Members of the UW rowing team round the tip of Picnic Point, followed by the team’s coaching launch and kayakers in this photo from last fall. During 2011, the UW’s Lakeshore Nature Preserve began a project at Picnic Point to halt erosion, improve views, and provide a gathering space for groups of up to eighty people. The improvements also include stone steps from the shoreline, so those on Lake Mendota can stop by for a bite, should any picnickers invite them.
