This park in downtown Madison, Wisconsin, is on the site of St. Raphael’s Cathedral, which burned down in 2005.

The 1.3 acre park contains a Catholic devotional “stations of the cross” walking path. The 14 stone crosses are meant to denote scenes from Christ’s suffering and death.

From the University of Wisconsin School of Music website:
“Designed by Arthur Peabody, the UW-Madison carillon was originally dedicated in 1936 with 25 bells. Additions and replacements resulted in the current configuration of 56 bells ranging in size from 15 to 6,823 pounds.

The UW-Madison carillon is one of three in Wisconsin, the others being at Marquette University in Milwaukee and First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Green Bay.”
