MPD Helps Bring Music to Olin Park Pavilion

Peter and Lou Berryman, a Madison favorite folk duo, will perform Friday evening, May 21st, in a free folk music concert at the historic Olin Park pavilion.

The concert is part of the Olin Park Project: a problem-solving effort initiated by officers of the South District's Community Police Team (CPT). It is aimed at bringing family oriented activities into the park with hopes that citizens will be inspired to reclaim Olin Park and the adjacent Turville Woods Conservancy.

For many years, sexual activity in the park has kept the area from realizing its true potential as a beautiful place for all Madison residents.

The concert, which will run from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., is co-sponsored by the South District CPT, the Bay Creek Neighborhood Association, and the Madison Parks Department.
