Authorizing a Memorandum Of Understanding between the City of Madison Parks Division and the Madison Skatepark Fund pertaining to the construction and maintenance of an All-Wheel Spot at Warner Park located at 2930 North Sherman Avenue and at Elvehjem Park located at 1202 Painted Post Drive.

 

Body

Madison Parks has worked with the Madison Skatepark Fund to identify a path forward to provide more geographically distributed opportunities for skating and other wheel sport activities.  The site at Warner Park is an unused former bleacher pad and does not conflict with existing use.  The Elvehjem site is the former tennis courts, which the recently adopted Master Plan supported changing into a wheel based recreational space.
