Park Improvements

In November of 2011, voters approved bond funding that will allow the City to address a backlog of infrastructure deficiencies that exist throughout the community. Through this funding opportunity, the Parks and Recreation Department will be improving areas of North Boulder Park.

On July 23, 2012 the Parks and Recreation Department held a meeting at North Boulder Park where neighbors evaluated the existing conditions of park amenities such as the playground, ball fields, the shelter, fitness equipment, etc. The information that was received at the July 23 meeting provided the Parks and Recreation Department a framework within which to begin preparing an improvement plan for the park. The following reflect comments that consistently came up in the park evaluations, as well as, priorities that have been identified by the Parks and Recreation Department:

  • Providing more opportunities for shaded seating and shaded picnicking
  • Better defining entry points on the north side of the park
  • Providing half court basketball
  • Providing par course activities some of which are ADA compliant
  • Condensing existing flower beds to allow for better maintenance
  • Irrigation and turf improvements
  • Improved accessibility to park features

On November 14, 2012 the Parks and Recreation Department went back to the public to present the concept plan for North Boulder Park based on these comments. A link to the plan that was presented at the November 14 meeting can be found on the right.

The final improvement plan for North Boulder Park was developed based on comments from the public at the November 14 meeting, as well as comments and discussions within the Parks and Recreation Department. A link to the final improvement plan can be found on the right.
