Last Updated: 06/24/2020

The playground replacement at Sherman Village Park is complete!

Two community meetings were held to discuss the replacement play equipment, playground surfacing and associated improvements.

On November 12th, 2018, Parks Division staff held an initial workshop to gather neighborhood input on potential playground equipment options.

A second meeting for Sherman Village Park playground replacement was held on Thursday, January 10th, at Blackhawk Middle School.

The below playground equipment options were presented and discussed:

Based on comments received at the January 10th meeting, a final equipment option based on Option 2 will be prepared for the park. The final equipment drawings will be posted here when available. Please contact Project Manager Mike Sturm at (608) 267-4921 or if you would like to provide input on the project but were unable to attend the scheduled meetings or have other questions.

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.
