Perhaps what Janesville is best known for is its abundance of beautiful parks and recreational areas. Handy boat launches, numerous ball fields, playgrounds, two public golf courses, tennis courts, abundance of parkland and 25+ miles of paved bike trail are just some of Janesville's amenities. Janesville also offers numerous opportunities to soak in the arts and be entertained, from local talent to nationally touring artists. We have plenty of exhibits and performances to enjoy throughout the year.
