Community Park Renovation Project
The community of Fort Lupton has come together to collaboratively envision, plan and fundraise for an inclusive community park for all to enjoy. Since January 2022 the City has engaged with two lead funding agencies, Great Outdoors Colorado and The Weld Trust. With the help from both agencies the completed vision is of an inclusive recreation and learning space will be safe and accessible to everyone, including those with economic barriers, physical disabilities, or limited social connections. Responsive to community input collected between 2017 and 2022, the project has been carefully designed to reduce barriers to outdoor recreation for all.
The proposed project addresses three specific priorities identified during the public outreach process, including the installation of: 1) an outdoor splash pad area, 2) on-site restroom facilities, 3) ADA-accessible playground equipment, 4) safer high-traffic, pedestrian areas, and 5) shade structures and picnic tables for outdoor gatherings.
Community Center Park - Community Input Survey
Your input is needed. This survey will take less than 5 minutes to complete, and is a tool used by the Fort Lupton Recreation Team to obtain citizen input on the park and recreational activities that the residents of Fort Lupton value. Ultimately the data will help to finalize design of the renovation project to determine the amenities, programs, services, events and improvements that are needed at Community Center Park. We greatly appreciate your time and effort. Survey will close on December 31, 2022.
Community Center Park - Youth Outreach
The City is aware of the importance of engaging end users in the planning process, and as such, continues to create opportunities to collect and elevate the voices of the community, such as youth in the Significant Support Needs classrooms, senior residents, and youth in the community (via Boys & Girls Club, local daycare's and 3rd graders for the public schools). Staff engaged with the 3rd grade classrooms in the Fort Lupton school district by having the kids participate in an interactive kid friendly survey.
