You’re invited to a playground workshop for Raemisch Homestead Park

The City of Madison Parks Division is improving the playground at Raemisch Homestead Park and they want your input.

This process includes a regional playground workshop specific to playground replacements anticipated for 2023 on the west side including Maple Prairie Park, Oak Park Heights Park and Raemisch Homestead Park.

The workshop will include a larger group discussion, providing opportunity for neighborhoods to learn and share ideas, then will break out into smaller individually staffed sessions to address design considerations specific to each park. Following the workshop, staff will use input gathered at this meeting to develop two playground concepts, which will be presented at a second playground meeting held this winter. The new playground equipment will be installed in 2023.

Please feel free to bring children to help provide input on the playground!
