North Star Park (Purple Park) Water Fountain and Decorative Tile Project
The final decorated tiles have been placed and the grout will be added by the end of October, bringing the project to a close. There were alot of hours volunteered by the MPNA Board Members as we tried to keep the expenses to a minimum, but we did utilize the following contractors-
Veridian Homes- Donated $2,000 to the project and provided assistance in drilling holes for pergola's and pillar foundations at no cost.
T.S Masonry-Built the pillars and installed the tiles at a reduced cost
House Doctors- Escavated pillar footings and poured the concrete for the pillar and bench footings at a reduced.
The City of Madison provided a $2,500 grant and supplied mulch and limestone screenings at no cost. Without their assistance, this project would not have been possible.
We hope everyone enjoys and helps protect this addition to our park.
Here is information on the matching program for improving our parks in the neighborhood. http://www.cityofmadison.com/parks/howVol.html
Northstar and McClellan are the only two City of Madison parks that would be involved in the program for our McClellan Park Neighborhood Association; this matching funds program is for neighborhood associations mainly. The Pocket Park is privately built by Veridian and not kept up by the City of Madison.
For Individuals who want to help out the parks, you can contribute by adding trees. ~$370 shade tree, ~$175-$200 ornamental serviceberry or crabapple tree. A plaque for a tree is an extra ~$200.
Individuals can also purchase for the park: benches ($1,000 on up) or all metal picnic tables ($1,000 on up) and these are left in the park year round; adding a plaque is an additional $100 to these items.
These individual gifts become the product to the city of Madison, the plaque is allowed to be placed on this gift for the fee. The plaque is a basic text and has to be approved by the City of Madison, usually for a memorial, 50 year anniversary, birthday, babies birth etc...
