A new community park that will include Windsor’s second spray park is in the early design phase in the Bear Tree Farms residential neighborhood.
On Feb. 16, the Windsor Village Board unanimously approved the hiring of Madison design firm D’Onofrio, Kottke, and Associates to head the engineering and design phase of the park to be located on Pederson Crossing Boulevard.
Along with the spray park, the 30-acre area park will include volleyball, tennis and basketball courts, two playgrounds, two pavilions, parking lots and various walking trails in and around the park at a cost of about $2 million.
Half of that will be paid by developers Dwight Ziegler and Steve Pederson.
“This is a community park, rather than a neighborhood park,” Windsor director of finance Tina Butteris told the board. “It will benefit all of Windsor DeForest.”
In addition to the construction of the new park, the board also approved a contractor for the construction of a park shelter at Grosbeak Park, a concession and storage building at Morrisonville Park and a storage building at Windsor Sports Commons for a combined cost of about $320,000.
