A community event held every year in Glenwood Children's Park near the corner of Glenway and Monroe streets, on Madison's west side.
It begins with volunteers pulling garlic mustard in the park to the strains of strolling musicians, followed by a potluck feast of dishes including wild plant ingredients.
Last year, the neighborhood children presented a play about overcoming the evil garlic mustard. Much music and merriment--a unique neighborhood event.
About Glenwood Children's Park
Nestled in the Dudgeon-Monroe Neighborhood of Madison, the park was dedicated on October 7th, 1949.
It is currently being restored with the cooperation of the Dudgeon-Monroe Neighborhood Association, the Madison Parks Division, and volunteers. The park is a city historic landmark.
Here, on the site of a former sandstone quarry, Jensen designed this park around the existing features using his trademark--native species. A stone council ring, another Jensen trademark based on Danish folk school and Native American traditions, is situated on top of a mound in the park. More.
