Allied Park Sun Shelter - Contract: 2017 Parks Division Sun Shelters Installation Contract #7907

Last Updated: 06/28/2017

A new open-sided, reservable picnic shelter has been constructed at Allied Park!  Contractor Madison Commercial Landscapes Inc. completed work on the sun shelter in late June.  Work by Parks Facilities staff and MGE will continue on the installation of wiring and associated hardware to bring a wifi "hotspot" to the park.

Construction of the shelter is part of the 2017 Parks Division Sun Shelters Installation contract and includes shelters at two other park sites.  The contract was awarded to Madison Commercial Landscapes, Inc. of Oregon, WI, who submitted the lowest qualified bid of $145,000 at the opening held on March 10, 2017. 

As approved by the neighborhood over a series of public input meetings held during the summer of 2016, the new shelter will be the first of several amenities constructed in 2017 as part of the master plan development of the park.
