Playground Project Status Report
Construction of the new playground is scheduled to begin the week following Labor Day. The site will be fenced off and unavailable for use
during construction. Please keep your children away from the playground area while the work is in progress.
Like any construction site, this one is likely to contain potential hazards, especially for young kids.
2015 Street Banner Project
The improvements are expected to be completed by mid to late October. The EPNA board wants to emphasize patience during the construction period.
We are confident that once the new playground is finished all will agree that the wait was well worth it.
An exciting plan has been created. The plan can now be viewed on the Enderis Park web site and Facebook page. The project is expected to
cost around $200,000 to fully develop. Fund raising has begun. So far our neighbors have pledged $3,500 toward the project. We intend to
use neighborhood pledges as a match for grants from various institutions. We are also expecting to hear soon about a major contribution from MPS.
Obviously, more pledges from neighborhood residents are welcome and needed. You can use the form included in the
2016 Spring or Summer Newsletters to make a pledge. You will
not be asked to provide actual funds until and unless sufficient monies have been identified to complete all, or at least a significant portion, of the project.
The playground plans will be on display at neighborhood events this summer including the spring plant sale, the Sunday farmers markets, the 4th of July celebration in the park, and
our summer concerts. Please stop by and take a look. We're sure you will become as excited about the playground project as we are.
Enderis Park Concept Drawing
The Enderis Park Neighborhood Association is pleased to announce our exciting upcoming project, which has been in the design and
planning stages for months.
A total of 22 decorative banners will be installed on selected city light poles on the three main streets bordering the Enderis Park neighborhood,
which are 76th Street, Center Street and Lisbon Avenue. The commercial corridor on Burleigh Street is also included. A map of the preliminary banner
locations is on the back of this page.
Each banner is 24” x 48” in size, with both sides having a beautiful full-color digital image of our very own ‘Magic Grove’ sculpture that is located
in our park. The banners will be installed in May of 2015, and remain up until October. This schedule will be repeated for approximately the next 3
The street banner project will provide a vibrant, distinctive and highly visible “identity” to the Enderis Park neighborhood.
Want easy access to locally-grown fruits and vegetables and locally prepared foods right in our own neighborhood? Then make sure you check
out the new Enderis Park Farmers Market! This summer, Enderis Park Neighborhood Association is launching a new farmers market at Enderis Park in
collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Schools Recreation Department. The market will run on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from June 19 through
September 25. At the market, a variety of local food producers will set up tents on the paved loop at the northeast corner of the park. The market
will also feature performances by local acoustic musicians and more.
Interested in volunteering at the market? Know a vendor and want to send them our way? Email the market manager, Enderis Park resident
Heather Sullivan, at email@example.com. We’ll be launching a weekly email blast with news about the market. A signup will
be available on the Enderis Park Farmers Market website soon.
