Wingra Park Path Replacement

Last Updated: 03/26/2021

Parks Division will be replacing the asphalt path through Wingra Park in 2021.  The existing path is in poor condition and in need of replacement. The current path is approximately 8' wide and the new path width will be increased to 12' to accommodate the high pedestrian and bicycle traffic this site sees as part of well traveled Lake Wingra loop.  Grading and drainage improvements will also take place near the path in order to create a more durable park path and grass surface.  A preliminary plan can be seen below.

It is anticipated that pedestrian traffic will need to be rerouted around the project via detour.  The detour specifics and dates will be updated when they are known. Access to the playground may be temporarily disrupted.

The project is currently under design by Parks staff.  Construction is anticipated to start on or after June 2021 and be complete by the end of the year.
