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 Replaced in Older Parks

On March 3, City Council acted on a resolution that 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.
