- Project typePark Development
In 2018, the city acquired approximately 60 acres of the "Taylor Estate" to be forever preserved as open space. This stunning property can be viewed from S. Wadsworth Blvd. between Morrison Road and Yale Ave. The acquisition was completed with the help and generosity of Jefferson County Open Space.
Park planning efforts and public engagement opportunities have been temporarily delayed to accommodate the redesign of a signalized intersection. The consultant team for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is working on traffic studies, environmental clearances and engineering for the addition of the eastern portion of the intersection, the street section that will provide the city access to the future park from Wadsworth Blvd.
The city will launch a public engagement process for the future park beginning in 2021 pending access improvements. If you would like to be informed of when that process begins so that you can share your input regarding open space design, please join our mailing list.
Take a birds-eye look at the Taylor property acquisition below.
