Lucia Crest Park Playground Replacement - Contract: 2019 Playgrounds - Group 1

Last Updated: 10/23/2018

Replacement of the playground at Lucia Crest Park is included in the Parks capital budget submittal for 2019!

Parks begins the planning process for playground replacements in advance of the finalization of the budget (which is anticipated to occur in November 2018) in order to receive public input and develop design documents for bidding in early 2019.  The first opportunity for input from the neighborhood on the design of the playground was at the Playgrounds - Group 1 Workshop held on 10/18/2018; materials from that session can be found in the links, below.

A follow-up meeting to review & vote on the specific equipment & colors for the playground will be held:
Lucia Crest Park Playground Meeting #2
Thursday, January 10, 2019
Midvale Elementary School library

Please contact Project Manager Kate Kane at (608) 261-9671 or if you would like to provide input on the project but are unable to attend the meeting or have other questions.

As a reminder, if the neighborhood has interest in fundraising to support the playground replacement project please contact Kate Kane to describe your fundraising intent/goal by November 8, 2018 and then contact the Madison Parks Foundation to set up your account.

2019 Playgrounds - Group 1 Workshop
was held Thursday, October 18 at 6PM - Sequoya Library (4340 Tokay Blvd)

At this session the replacement of the existing equipment, surfacing and benches were discussed during the break-out/table session with Parks staff.  Attendees at the session learned the all of the equipment (with the exception of the merry-go-round), surfacing and benches will be replaced with the project.  Attendees cast the majority vote for wood mulch surfacing and 5-12 age range equipment and PlayWorld Systems as the manufacturer to develop two proposals for the follow-up meeting in early 2019.  During the table session, the group also discussed that the new playground at Lucia Crest Park will be situated roughly over the existing footprint, but pulled back somewhat from the existing trees and retaining wall to allow for adequate equipment use zones.  An accessible path will be added connecting the playground to the existing sidewalk along N Owen Drive.
