Legacy Children’s Foundation
Community Improvement Projects
Legacy is leading dramatic improvements to the overall beauty and use of Madison Park. With a cohesive partnership with Fargo Public Schools, Fargo Park District, Fargo Police Department, local businesses and volunteers the only green space available for healthy recreation is transforming.
In 2012, LCF made improvements to the basketball courts, lighting, fencing, playground and added a picnic shelter. More than $50,000 of in-kind labor and materials from our community made this possible.
In 2016, LCF applied for and received a $50,000 HUD Community Block Grant and a $10,000 FM Area Community grant to build a new beginners bike and skate park.
Fargo’s first public art project was birthed in the summer of 2016 through the gifted talents and leadership of nationally renowned sculptor, Brad Bachmeier. https://fargobricksculpture.strikingly.com A masterpiece of hand created bricks, mosaic tiles that represent the deep roots of the Madison families are showcased in the pieces.
Through the gifts of Hebron Brick, Houston Engineering, mason Paul Speral and 294 volunteer artists the creations were created and will be installed during the summer of 2017. The estimated value of the sculptures is $75,000.
Madison Park will become a show case of creative vitality, recreation and pride for the nearly 800 families who call it “home.”
In 2018, Thorsteinson and Sons partnered with the Fargo Park District to construct the second picnic shelter in Madison Park. It is a much-appreciated resting spot for children and families using the bike and skate park venues. Thank you!
