Grand Opening Scheduled At New Wirth Court Park | Events
Hundreds of volunteers descended upon a quiet east side park in the on Thursday morning, their mission to build a brand new playground from the ground up. They did it and now neighbors are invited to come out and celebrate the new and improved Wirth Court Park.
The journey to the new Wirth Court playground started several months ago when the Goodman Community Center was awarded a KaBOOM! grant. In August, children and their parents were invited to a Design Day where they drew up plans for their own dream park.
Thanks to the generous donation of a $75,000 KaBOOM! playground by Kraft Foods Foundation and the combined efforts of Kraft Foods/Oscar Mayer Madison employees, as well as Goodman Community Center employees, Madison Parks employees, volunteers and neighbors, the new playground was built and installed in less than six hours.
Join your friends and neighbors on Monday, Oct. 10 at 2 p.m. for the grand opening and be among the first to play on the new playground that was designed by you and built by the community.
