Indian Hills Park Playground Replacement - Contract: 2018 Playground Replacements Group 1 (8154)

Last Updated: 04/02/2018

The contract to replace the playground at Indian Hills Park was opened on 3/15/2018 and has been awarded to Madison Commercial Landscapes, Inc., who submitted the lowest (and only) bid received of $122,248.50.  Work on the contract will begin on or before 5/14/2018 at Odana Hills Park.  Work at Indian Hills Park will begin shortly thereafter.  All project sites within the contract are anticipated to be completed on or before early August 2018.


BACKGROUND:

Parks began public meetings to discuss the project in advance of the finalization of the budget to keep the planning and construction bidding process on-schedule for construction in 2018.  The first of two meetings was held on October 26th to discuss playground equipment age range, surfacing, proposed project location, timeframe and budget.  Materials from that session can be found at the links, below.

There were no attendees from the neighborhood present at the second meeting (on 11/29 at Sequoya Library) for Indian Hills Park to vote from among two proposals from the manufacturer (Playworld) selected during the first workshop meeting for the specific equipment to be installed at the parkhowever Indian Hills Neighborhood Association stepped forward with a survey conducted via Next Door and received 15 votes, with a majority preference for Option #2, so Parks staff will proceed with that directive.  Both proposals are shown, below, in the colors (dark green and browns) and age-range (5-12) that were also selected during the first workshop session.

Please share this information and contact Kate Kane at (608) 261-9671 or at kkane@cityofmadison.com if you have any questions or would like to provide input on the project.
