Elver Park Inclusive Playground: Contract - 2018 Elver Park Inclusive Playground

Last Updated: 02/22/2018

Check out the revised equipment proposal from Little Tykes Commercial at the Elver Park Neighborhood Center's
Black History Month Celebration on Thursday, February 22nd from 6-8PM!

Parks staff will be on-hand to show the equipment selected during the first meeting and review period (from manufacturer Little Tykes Commercial) in an entirely new color scheme.  But we are seeking your input on this option, as-well!  Please plan to attend to help to determine the colors for the equipment to be installed at the park!


The first meeting to discuss the playground replacement at Elver Park in 2018 was held on 1/18/18 at the Elver Park Neighborhood Center (1201 McKenna Blvd).  At the session, attendees worked to layout the new playground and associated amenities such as benches and trees as well as discussing other options for this area of the park including relocation of the basketball court and relocation or removal of the path in this area in light of the new sidewalk along McKenna Blvd.  The boards from this component of the discussion are shown, below.

Also at the first meeting, attendees reviewed and discussed proposals from four playground equipment manufacturers and placed sticker votes on their preferred option.  Boards from the session are shown, below.  These boards were posted at the Elver Park Neighborhood Center (1201 McKenna Blvd) so that those unable to attend the first session could view the proposals and add their vote!

Parks staff will take all of the information from this session, as well as comments or input received via email and telephone call, to continue to work with the equipment manufacturer that received the majority vote to refine the equipment and develop a layout for the project site.  Alders McKinney and Phair will be consulted to determine how best to present the final design proposal.

Questions or comments regarding this project can be sent to Kate Kane, project manager, at kkane@cityofmadison.com or (608) 261-9671.
