BINGHAM, Maine--Dec. 30, 2013--The Plum Creek Foundation recently awarded a $5,000 grant to the Town of Madison Park & Playground Committee to help fund the Maine Street Park project.

The project successfully built a centrally located park for the town’s 5,000 residents. According to Tim Curtis, developer, the 20,000 square-foot park includes playground equipment, benches, picnic tables, a large green lawn, shade trees and a parking lot.

“Parks offer endless opportunities for community gatherings, “said Curtis. “Thanks to the help of the Plum Creek Foundation, we can provide a park where families, neighbors and children can come together to enjoy the outdoors.”

The park provides the outdoor space needed for local festivals, concerts and farmer’s markets.  The town raised more than $70,000 in donations and recruited 40 volunteers to install the new playground equipment. The park was completed the first week of December.

The Madison Park & Playground Committee’s mission is to make Madison a great place to live, work and play. The organization operates on the philosophy that the development of strong, collaborative relationships in the community forms a stable foundation for social, spiritual, physical and economic well-being.
