1. Hoyt Park Marker
Inscription. Frank W. Hoyt (1852 - 1950) was a founder of the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association in 1894. He was its treasurer for 38 years, and served 11 more years on the Madison Parks board when it began managing Madison parks in 1932.

This park was an expansion of Owen Parkway, the first of the several pleasure drives developed by the Association. Hoyt, a native Madisonian, and his wife, Mary, donated gifts of land to enlarge the park in 1924 and again in 1941.
