Recreation Projects Kicking Off

Northwest Open Space

Phase I of the Northwest Open Space Improvements is underway. This project includes an expanded south parking lot, a new restroom and concession building, trail replacement, shade shelters and improvements to the landscape, irrigation and drainage systems. 

Construction is set to begin in early November and is expected to take approximately six months. Located south of West 112th Avenue, off of Ranch Drive, Northwest Open Space is home to a number of athletic fields, paths and a playground. The south parking lot will be closed during construction, but the north lots will still be open. Please excuse our mess during the construction as we work to complete these exciting improvements. 

The city generously received $2,040,000 in grant funding from Adams County Open Space for this project.

Kiwanis Pool

Kiwanis Pool is about to get an exciting facelift. The bath house will be replaced and a splash pad will be added. 

The demolition of the bath house takes place in November, and will be followed by construction of the new building and splash pad in the spring. The 2,586-square-foot pad will be located east of the existing baby pool and have play areas for children of all ages. It will feature a nature theme, including a 9-foot-tall frog and a garden of 12-foot-tall flowers. The pool and splash pad are anticipated to open for the 2019 season. 

Originally built in 1955, this outdoor pool is located at 550 Garland Drive. 

Thanks to Adams County Open Space, which gave $800,000 for this project.
