Update January 2022
We are happy to announce that a Contractor has been selected to perform the court replacement project at Boulder Park. Renner Sports Courts has put forth a schedule to meet the City deadline for completion by June 2022, and will begin in the field starting in Feb/March, after engineering drawings and permits are finalized. Courts can’t be finalized until temperatures permit the final top surfacing application. This usually cannot occur until at least sometime in May. The project is currently scheduled to be completed by the end of June 2022.
When all of the court work is complete to include the new walkway we will schedule a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate this long awaited milestone.
Feel free to contact PRCS Department staff especially if citizen’s have interest in collaborating and funding a 2020 Master PlanA plan for the development of a portion of the city that contains proposed land uses, a generalized transportation system, and the relationship of the area included in the plan to surrounding property. element.
The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Advisory Board unanimously approved the Boulder Park Master Plan on March 12, 2020. This plan will guide identified park improvements, some of which have secured funding from the 2018 2B Tabor Retention. These elements include the tennis/pickleball courts, multi-use court and the rerouting of the east end walking loop.
Funding partners are being sought for the sport courts, playground update, benches and table tennis tables.
Thanks to the Friends of Boulder Park, the Trails & Open Space Coalition, UC Health, and the over 100 community members who have been involved in bringing these improvements to life.
Starting in 2014, concerned residents began a discussion with the City of Colorado Springs and Memorial Hospital (now UC Health) about smoking issues in Boulder Park as well as needed park improvements. This resulted in the creation of The Friends of Boulder Park and launched the Boulder Park master plan process, which collected community input and evaluated park improvement needs. The first of four public meetings was held in February 2019, and feedback was collected from a variety of stakeholders.
