The "Duck Pond" at Warner Park

The "Duck Pond" at Warner Park is home to the Madison Mallards Baseball Club.  The field was built in 1982 and has a rich baseball history. The park has been home to the Madison Muskies, Madison Hatters, and Madison Black Wolf. 

The Mallards came to town in 2001 and since that time, in conjunction with the City of Madison, have built more than $3-million in stadium improvements. In 2011, the ballpark went through a complete renovation, with a new grandstand, including stadium seats from Camden Yards home of the Baltimore Orioles. 

Visitors at the "Duck Pond" have a wide array of activities to enjoy. Upon entering the gates, families can stop at the Meriter and Physicians Plus Kids Zone and enjoy the Mallards playground, bounce house, weinermobile slide, sand box, and more. Stay after the game on June 10th for a fireworks display!

Join Luther friends for a great evening of baseball, fellowship and fun!
