Parks Update, August 2014

Griffith Station and Britton Parks

These neighborhood parks projects were scheduled to be bid in Spring 2014, but upon review of the park plans, the City Public Works Department requested upgrades to walkways, utilities and drainage. These enhanced plans are currently being finalized with the goal to begin construction in the Fall of 2014.

Memorial Park Update

The City of Arvada Park Advisory Committee held its rededication of Memorial Park on  August 27, 2014. A ribbon cutting was followed by disc golf and skateboard demonstrations.

Community Development Block Grant and City Park funds were used to accomplish the primary goal of the Memorial Park which was to move and reconstruct the Ralston Creek Trail to reduce conflicts by providing a separate neighborhood park site isolated from disc golf play and renovate
and restore the Ralston Creek environment.


Playground Equipment to be Replaced in Older Parks

On March 3, City Council acted on a resolution that will lead to the replacement of five playgrounds: Bridgeside Park, Homestead Park, Ladybug Park, Lew Walsh Park and Yankee Doodle Park. The Yankee Doodle Park playground is the oldest playground in the city and was constructed in 1989.

Three new parks will be constructed in the Leyden Rock development: Lookout Park, Daybreak Park and West Ridge Park. Two new parks are planned in the Whisper Creek development: Whisper Creek Park and Panorama Park. All five parks are part of master-planned communities. Park names were selected by the developer as part of their marketing planning
