Join us as we plan for the future of James Madison Park!

The City of Madison Parks Division invites community members to join us in exploring these questions and more during the James Madison Park master plan and shelter design process, December 2017-October 2018. The updated James Madison Park master plan will guide development of this iconic park and the existing shelter.  To ensure that the updated master plan and shelter design accurately reflect community needs, concerns and priorities, the City is implementing a robust public engagement effort focused on generating feedback from diverse segments of the community. As part of the engagement process, the project team will conduct interviews with park users, organize park user focus groups, distribute an online community survey and comment cards, and host four community meetings:
