In 2010 a dedicated group of parents and neighbors finished raising over $106,000 in just two years to refurbish Olive Jones Park, a Madison park adjacent to Randall Elementary School. The new and innovative play equipment perfectly serves the 3-5 graders at the school and neighborhood.
In June 2013, the playground and safety surface were destroyed due to fire.
Insurance has covered the cost to replace the equipment. The Madison Parks Division worked with the neighborhood to determine that wood chip mulch would be used for the safety surface. To help with the costs of getting Olive Jones Park back in use for the neighborhood kids, Madison Parks was awarded a "Let's Play Maintenance Grant" from KaBOOM! and Dr Pepper Snapple Group.
"After the unfortunate incident earlier this summer, Madison Parks is excited to get this park back in use for the neighborhood kids," said Kevin Briski, Madison Parks Superintendent.
