A beautiful park on Madison's east side, near Kennedy Elementary School and adjacent to Heritage Sanctuary. The park boasts a sun shelter, play equipment, recently refurbished tennis courts, and softball diamonds.
2014 - Heritage Heights Playground is scheduled to have new playground surfacing installed within the next few weeks. The existing playground surfacing will be replaced with wood fiber mulch that meets the safety standards set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). The extents of this new surfacing may differ from the existing surfacing to accommodate the playground equipment fall safety zones.
As part of the playground resurfacing, there will be additional improvements made to enhance accessibility and safety at the playground. A new ADA accessible asphalt path will also be installed to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design, which regulates federal requirements for playground and athletic facility accessibility. Also, new plastic border timbers will be installed to keep the new wood mulch in place and at the necessary depths to meet the CPSC fall zone requirements. The borders will also simplify maintenance operations and increase our maintenance staff's efficiency.
