Belmont, from the French belle monte, means "beautiful mountain." The top of Belmont Mound is 1,400 feet above sea level. From the tower atop the mound in the center of the park, you can see for many miles in all directions, to the Wisconsin River valley, Iowa and Illinois. Wisconsin's First Capitol historic site is a half mile west of the park.
