Pink Evening Primrose Trail


Pink Evening Primrose Trail

Segment 1 of the Pink Evening Primrose Trail was completed fall of 2019. The 8' wide concrete trail connects the below grade crossing at Morriss Road that connects to the Riverwalk development. It meanders through the open field and runs behind the daycare facility to Timber Creek Road. It proceeds north along the west side of Timber Creek Road to College and then on up to connect to the existing 8' trail behind Lamar Middle School.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Cortadera Park Improvements



The project includes a new interior loop trail that includes benches overlooking the pond, new basketball striping with courtside benches, ADA compliance improvements, and irrigation for the practice field. Additional improvements include a section of wrought iron fencing at the pond and new trees with irrigation. Irrigation installation is complete, and final punch list items are in progress. These improvements were completed in fall of 2019.

Rheudasil Park Design



The project is for the design and development of the approved Master Plan for Rheudasil Park (approved December 2014).  Design of the project was delayed until completion of the dredging and bank stabilization project.  The professional services agreement, with Studio Outside Landscape Architecture, LLC., in the amount of $136,700, was awarded at the October 1, 2018 council meeting. Due to the length of time since the master plan approval, the master plan was “re-presented” at the December 6, 2018 Parks Board meeting. A design kick-off meeting was held on December 9.  The next step is the site assessment.  The design is expected to be complete by Fall 2019.  The consultant will provide the Parks Board with a design update at the 60% completion mark.  Once complete, the project will be put out to bid for construction in FY 19/20. 60% design presented to Parks Board May 2, 2019. Bid opening was April 8 via online bidding. Bids came in higher than budget. Plan to rebid with award in November. 


Canyon Falls Park Design



This project is for the design and development of Canyon Falls Park. The approved master plan for the park includes a playground and pavilion, restrooms, basketball court, splashpad, trails and parking.  The professional services agreement, with Mesa Design Associates in the amount of $149,500, was awarded at the October 1, 2018 council meeting. The design is expected to be complete by Fall 2019.  Once complete, the project will be put out to bid for construction in FY 19/20. Design is ongoing. 60% design was presented to Parks Board August 1, 2019. 70% design complete. Advertised for bid May 17.
