Future of Olbrich Park
A neighborhood conversation
Thursday Feb 12 - 7:15 PM
@ Goodman Community Center
Our regular 2nd-Thursday-of-the-month neighborhood association meeting is
TONIGHT, Thursday February 12, 7:15 PM, at the Goodman Community Center.
This month we're talking about the future of Olbrich Park.
You're all invited.
Bill Bauer, from the City Parks Department, will be at the meeting tonight to
present the City's current proposed master plan for Olbrich Park. Atwood
neighbors have many questions and concerns, such as:
* Future amount of pavement - # of parking spaces and amount of paved road
north of the bike path;
* Proposal to take out 2 softball diamonds and parking lot to allow Olbrich
Gardens to expand east of Starkweather Creek; and
* Proposal to expand boat parking on the grass next to Lake Monona.
The City Board of Park Commissioners expects to make a final decision on the
future of Olbrich Park at its March 11 meeting.
