Park Update

The city is currently exploring flood mitigation and trail options for the upstream reach from Upland Avenue through Violet Park to the west of town. The City will complete a CEAP process to evaluate the various alternatives available. As part of this effort, the Parks Department will be evaluating concepts for Violet Park and potential impact on future development.

Park Improvement Pre-Planning with CU Boulder

Parks and Recreation has had the opportunity to work with a CU Environmental Design class to engage students in developing some ideas for what the park could look like, and to provide some initial concepts for the park design. Staff anticipate that if the neighbors enjoy some of the design themes, and if they meet the design and operation standards of the department, that these ideas can be further explored through a formal design process. This initial neighborhood engagement will allow the community to share their goals and desires for the park, respond to some of the design themes presented by the students, and give an opportunity for the students to have a real life experience in facilitating a community meeting.

This open house will occur on Nov. 21 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Crest View Elementary along with several other North Boulder Public Works projects.
