On Feb. 22, Lakewood City Council approved a resolution declaring the intent to purchase of 6.92 acres of land adjacent to the Bear Creek Greenbelt for open space and park purposes. The property, located at  9555 W. Cornell Pl., is the remainder of an earlier city acquisition for the Greenbelt. View an image of the area.(JPG, 405KB) 

The land will become a part of the Greenbelt, preserving the flood plain, protecting wildlife habitat and providing recreational opportunities to the community. The Bear Creek Trail improvement project will also utilize this land as an opportunity to remedy trail issues that impact safety along the heavily used and popular Bear Creek Trail. Immediate plans for the property include removal of existing structures and site cleanup.

The park acquisition was funded from the first installment of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) refund recaptures.
