Madison Parks Foundation receives leadership gift for accessible playgrounds
The Madison Parks Foundation and the city of Madison Parks Division announced that Festival Foods is a major contributor to the Fully Accessible & Inclusive Playgrounds Project at Warner Park. Currently, there are two fully accessible and inclusive playgrounds in the city — one at Brittingham Park and one at Elver Park. The Parks Division has committed $1.7 million to complete five fully accessible playgrounds, and the Madison Parks Foundation has committed to raising $420,000 to bridge the gap for these five playgrounds. The cost of an accessible and inclusive park is about four times the cost of a standard playground.
