Public Meeting 2 | July 21, 2022: Draft concept alternatives will be presented at the second public meeting on this project. Find full details below and add the event to your calendar.


Project Scope

This project is a collaborative master planning process of approximately 90 acres of Bear Creek Park in far southwest Denver. This regional park contains many acres of natural landscapes, a portion of Bear Creek and Bear Creek Regional Trail, as well as Sombrero playground, picnic shelters, ballfields and a restroom building. The park is also home to the Southwest YMCA.  

The process involves community engagement at all phases to ensure community input is shaping the future vision of this park. The project will result in a master plan document and concept plan for park improvements to be implemented in phases to make Bear Creek Park a resilient destination park.
