The City of Madison Department of Civil Rights and Madison Parks officials will meet with the media to highlight efforts to expand access and inclusion to play at the Brittingham Park accessible playground. By building a playground that everyone, regardless of ability, can access, the City has demonstrated a commitment to inclusion for all, youth and young-at-hearts alike. This playground was also the first opportunity for the City to conduct a community-requested equity analysis.

Access is a civil right. This new playground highlights the City’s commitment to promoting equality for all while demonstrating the importance of inclusion for Madison’s youth.
