Plum Creek North Park
Work is starting on a new neighborhood park at the former Plum Creek pool site. Thanks to your input and feedback, the design includes half-court basketball, shade structure, plumbed restroom, pickleball courts, plaza areas, seating, two playgrounds, a boulder play structure, bocce ball courts and a parking lot.
This neighborhood park will be completed in summer 2024, and we need your help to give it a fitting name! Take a questionnaire and tell us what comes to mind when you think of this new park.
We loved seeing the neighborhood turn out for the groundbreaking event and hope you had fun "spinning the wheel" after submitting your name suggestions. We saw some great ideas go into the ballot box!
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the groundbreaking celebration, with shovels in hand! Below please find a link to the photos from the event.
In 2019, Town Council approved the purchase of 7.6 acres from Southwest Greens for the purpose of future park development. Just north of Emerald Drive, the site sits adjacent to the Plum Creek Golf Club. Due to the conditions of the park's amenities upon purchase resulting from extensive deferred maintenance, the aging features were removed to prepare the site for future construction. Removed amenities included tennis courts, pool, pool structures, a pavilion and the playground. Once demolition was complete, contractor AGISI Environmental Services backfilled the area with soil and applied native seed.
Throughout 2020 and 2021, landscape architect DHM Design Corporation gathered public feedback and met with department staff to assess the needs and wants to plan the future park site. DHM then drafted a master plan and surveyed the public on the design; public input was favorable. The plan for Plum Creek North includes replacing the parking lot and adding walkway lighting, half-court basketball, a pavilion, a four-season restroom, playgrounds serving youth 2 to 5 years old and 5 to 12 years old, as well as pickleball courts and yard games.
In June 2023, Town Council approved a construction contract with Colorado Designscapes Inc., for park development. Work will commence in summer 2023, with anticipated completion in 2024.
This project will be funded through the Parks and Recreation Capital Fund generated by impact fees charged to developers to help ensure that growth pays for growth.
