Greeley Skatepark Concepts Need Public Feedback
Based on the suggestions of local skaters, BMXers, and community members, the City of Greeley developed conceptual options for three new city skateparks.
In October, more than 100 people told the City what they wanted Greeley’s new skateparks to look like. The City’s consultant, New Line Skateparks combined all that feedback into early conceptual designs for skatepark possibilities.
Now the City needs help from our local skaters, BMXers, and community members again. The City will present the design ideas for these new parks at a special meeting. At that meeting, Greeley staff need as much feedback as possible from the community about the new designs — what they like and how to improve them.
The meeting will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8, at the Greeley Recreation Center, 651 10th Ave, Room 101.
Next summer, this $1.5million project will retrofit one park, replace another, and build a completely new skatepark. When finished, Greeley will have a network of community-designed skateparks at three locations:
- 3rd Street & 11th Avenue
- Centennial Park
- Peak View Park
Greeley’s most recent parks, trails, and open land master plan process identified a need for more and improved skateparks. These user-driven skatepark projects will help to create a network of parks with a variety of features that support all wheel sports in Greeley and the surrounding area.
