Warner Park Gets Clean & Safe Beach Corridor

Project Overview

City Engineering will be replacing the existing beach house with a new park shelter and restrooms at Warner Beach.  The building will also include a pump room as part of the Clean Beach system announced in August 2019, a joint project between the City of Madison and Dane County.  Warner Beach Park Shelter will be the fifth prototype park shelter and restrooms.  Previous prototype shelters are located at Lake Edge Park; Esther Beach; Penn Park and Walter Street at Olbrich Park.

Sept. 30, 2020: Construction on the Warner Beach Park Shelter officially started onsite the day after Labor Day, Sept. 8th. Asbestos abatement and demo was completed on the existing shelter to make way for the staking and excavation for the new shelter. As of this week, footings have been poured and forms are being set for the foundation walls. Follow our Flickr and EarthCam links to watch this building site take shape!
