Demetral Park Playground Replacement

The City of Madison will be constructing playground improvements at Demetral Park!  New playground equipment will be installed in 2015.  The City of Madison held a public input meeting regarding the project on October 30, 2014.  Staff used input gathered from this meeting to develop two playground concepts that were presented at a playground meeting on January 12, 2015.  Based on input received at these meetings, Playground Equipment Option 2 was selected for Demetral Park.
