Replacement of the playground at Sherman Village Park is included in the Parks capital budget for 2019!

On November 12th, Parks Division staff held an initial workshop to gather neighborhood input on potential playground equipment options.

A second meeting to review & vote on the specific equipment & colors for the playground will be held:

Sherman Village Park Playground Meeting #2
Blackhawk Middle School

1402 Wyoming Way
Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Please contact Project Manager Mike Sturm at (608) 267-4921 or msturm@cityofmadison.com 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 Mike Sturm to describe your fundraising intent/goal by November 29, 2018 and then contact the Madison Parks Foundation to set up your account. 


The first opportunity for input from the neighborhood on the design of the playground was held at:

2019 Playgrounds - Group 2 Workshop
Monday, November 12 at 6:00 PM - Emerson Elementary School Cafeteria (2421 East Johnson Boulevard)

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 that all of the equipment, surfacing, and benches will be replaced with the project.  Attendees cast the majority vote for 5-12 age range equipment and Burke as the manufacturer to develop two proposals for the follow-up meeting in late 2018.  Attendees preferred wood mulch for the new playground surfacing. An accessible path will be added connecting the playground to the existing park sidewalk.
