Middleton, Wisconsin, is a small city of 17,500 that neighbors the state capital, Madison. The city will spend more than $200,000 this year on a 1.2-mile extension of porous pavement featuring a 60-foot steel arched bridge that links the city’s heavily used Pheasant Branch Creek Trail with a wooded area among a shopping center, hotels, and local businesses. In addition to use by walkers, runners, and cyclists, the new trail will facilitate public health by featuring a parcourse of five ENERGI fitness stations by Playworld Systems that provide an outdoor training opportunity for youth and adults.
