Future Parks

The Park Planning & Development Department plans the City's neighborhood and community parks. Neighborhood parks which tend to be smaller in scope are intended to provide balance amid Fort Collins' growth. Larger in scale and amenities than neighborhood parks, community parks feature a blend of active and passive areas. Park Planning tries to allot 2.5 acres for every 1,000 people for neighborhood parks, and 4.5 acres for every 1,000 people for community parks.

Neighborhood Parks

Maple Hill Neighborhood Park:

The 7-acre park will be master planned in late 2014 with construction planned for 2015/16.

Trail Head Neighborhood Park:

The 4-acre park will be master planned in 2015 with construction planned for 2016.


Community Parks

Southeast Community Park:

The 54-acre park is located at the northeast intersection of Ziegler Road and Kechter Road. The park is located adjacent to and south of Fossil Ridge High School. A conceptual design for the park was completed with the high school to ensure compatibility. Two lighted tennis courts and a day use ballfield were constructed with the high school project and are open to the public. The Edora Park BMX track was relocated to this site in 2010.

The master plan for the park will be completed in 2014. The planning process will include extensive public outreach. Facilities at the park could include: a restroom, picnic shelters, a playground, sidewalks and walking paths, open turf areas, lighted ballfields, lighted tennis and basketball courts, parking, and landscaping.
