In 2021 Eken Park will get new playground equipment as part of the City of Madison Parks Replacement Program. This program allows neighborhoods to contribute financially to add more playground items
Community members, in cooperation with the Madison Parks Foundation, aim to raise $8,000 to build a natural play area in addition to the playground equipment the city is providing. This would pay for logs, stumps, and boulders like these in Reger Park. The Eken Park Neighborhood Association has committed to donating $1,000 to jumpstart the project. Won’t you join in?
Benefits of a natural play area:
- Presents opportunities for children of all skill and activity levels
- Encourage imaginative play through a variety of sensory stimulation
- Allows for open-ended play and more social negotiation
- Aids in the development of motor skills through balance, climbing different textures, and jumping
Eken Park would LOVE your help!
