eNews from Mayor Paul R. Soglin February - March
In 2017, a fully-accessible playground will be installed near the park's shelter. A second playground will replace the existing popular playground near the community gardens and a third playground, near Brittingham Beach will be the first nature-based playground offered at Madison Parks.
The decision to install these playgrounds is the result of incredible collaboration between the City, the neighborhood and disability advocates. I am really pleased that a consensus was reached and delighted that Madison will have its first handicap accessible playground.

On March 5, a kick-off event at Warner Park Community Center will offer a chance for youth and organizational leaders to review Madison's assets and current challenges to all children spending time in nature.
