Parks Alive ~ Lift Leopold is a collaborative effort across multiple City departments and involves many community-based stakeholders and mobile resources. Parks Alive is a great opportunity for residents to come out to local parks, build community, strengthen relationships, and have fun!
This project collaboration was made possible, in part, with the consultation of the International Mountain Bike Association, with funding provided by the Dane County PARC and Ride grant and the generous donation of the Saris Foundation, through the Madison Parks Foundation. The Saris Foundation believes every child deserves a fun, safe, and energizing place to ride bikes. Their mission is to invest in bike park projects in underserved communities worldwide.
The Healthy Kids Collaborative was established in 2011 with a diverse group of Dane County partners who banded together to work on high-level, policy change to combat the childhood obesity epidemic. From this core group of 10 leading organizations, we have grown into a coalition of health champions – over 500 strong, working to ensure that every child, from every neighborhood has the opportunity to be healthy. We recognize that a child’s health and wellness are integrally tied to place – to where they live, where they go to school, and where they play.
Aldo Leopold Park is located at 2906 Traceway Dr, Madison, WI 53713
