Begin Park Playground Project

begin playground equipmentBegin Park, located at 5407 Wisconsin Avenue North, will be updated with new playground equipment during the summer of 2020.

The project will involve the replacement of the playground equipment container, improvements to the short sidewalk area leading to the container, new benches and a new park sign.

The playground at this park was last replaced in 1996 and is currently the oldest in the park system. Planning started this past November, and a survey was sent to Begin Park neighbors asking for their input on the new equipment and if they had interest in being a part of the planning committee. Meetings will be held in February and March. Later this spring, the City Council will approve the design, authorize bids for the site portion of the project and approve contracts. Staff anticipates the project to be completed this summer.
