The long, cold winter is finally over and we’re ready to get outside and soak up some sun! Fitchburg is home to beautiful parks and outdoor spaces, perfect for enjoying the warmer weather. Get in a game of disc golf, pack a picnic or get out there for a long bike ride!
Get out and golf
Golfers, it’s time to get out there and hit the links! Nine Springs Golf & Disc Course, a beautiful golf course located in the heart of Fitchburg, is open for the season and the nine hole par 30 layout provides playability for the novice, yet still has enough hazards to challenge even the most skilled players. Disc golfers pay a flat rate of $5 and play all day!
The Legend At Bergamont is another great option for golfers in the area. Located just outside of Fitchburg, The Legend at Bergamont hosts a 7,330 yard 18 hole Championship Golf Course, designed by two time US Open Champion, Andy North. The Legend at Bergamont was recognized as one of Golf Digest's Top 10 New Courses in America 2006.
Fitchburg on Two-Wheels
If you're looking to explore our local bike trails this spring, Fitchburg is the perfect biking hub, and a great place to start. Designated a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, Fitchburg features two mountain bike trails and five recreational rides, three of which are state trails. The roads winding through Fitchburg to other Wisconsin destinations, like Paoli or New Glarus are popular for everyone from weekend travelers to Ironmen and women in training. Be sure to veer off the trails and visit some local restaurants and breweries!
The Perfect Picnic
