As part of the City of Verona's updated Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP), a park master plan for Fireman's Park was developed.

In 2016, Verona hired MSA to work with the Parks, Forestry, & Recreation Committee in updating their Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, as part of that effort, MSA developed a park master plan for Fireman’s Park.
 
The plan identified $3 million in future infrastructure projects over a 5 year period. The park is home to the City’s only outdoor aquatic facility, Goose Lake and beach. The plan looks to replace and update facilities including a new bathhouse, splash pad, trail connection to the Ice Trail, beach improvements, fishing and picnic areas, playground, parking lot, kayak/canoe launch, overlook and general vegetation clean up/invasive species eradication.  The City plans on moving forward with design and would like to see ground break at the end of the swim season with the goal of having the park reopen for the 2018 summer season.
 
As part of the planning process MSA arranged a tour for City Staff of local splash pads to assist City Staff with a better understanding of the pros and cons of the two filtration options, flow thru and recirculation, and other general factors to consider in the splash pad design.  MSA also coordinated a meeting with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to help determine what projects may be grant eligible and assist the City in scoping the next phases of the project.
