The Madison Parks Division is developing a master plan for the Edward Klief Park, an urban park in Madison's Greenbush neighborhood that has slowly grown to the size of a city block.
District Ald. Julia Kerr says it is well used by kids from St. James Catholic School, UW students and families with kids: "Somebody took a picture a day after a snowstorm and it was completely filled with footprints."
The city has been buying up property on the block, bounded by Bowen Court and Charter, Orchard and Milton streets. The park already has a playground, basketball and volleyball courts, a baseball backstop and recreational space. But these could be rearranged based on what residents want.
"Nothing is impossible except for maybe a sledding hill, because it's flat," jokes Kay Rutledge, Parks development manager.
The division hopes to include funding for the park in the 2011 capital budget.
