Bucking Horse Park
Bucking Horse Park Update
While the timeline of the Bucking Horse Park project is currently delayed due to COVID-19, staff are continuing to work internally on various aspects of the project to keep things moving forward. When details regarding future public engagement opportunities and project construction become more solid, Park Planning & Development will update the community and neighborhood through Nextdoor and this webpage.
The City of Fort Collins is set to develop a 6-acre neighborhood park located along Miles House Road in the Bucking Horse neighborhood. The park will have typical elements that may include a multi-purpose field, restroom, picnic pavilion, playground, and concrete walks/paths that connect to the Bucking Horse internal neighborhood walks and the future adjacent Poudre River Trail. The park design process will take place in 2019/2020 and construction to start in 2021.
The City of Fort Collins is also working to develop a 3-acre park district maintenance facility that will be located off of Environmental Drive in the Bucking Horse neighborhood. The East District Maintenance Facility will be used to maintain 5 neighborhood parks, 2 community parks, an archery range and portions of the Fossil Creek, Rendezvous and Poudre River Trails in the east park district. It will house park maintenance crews, equipment and have shop and office space for maintenance staff. Design for the facility is underway and will continue through the end of 2020 with construction to start in 2021. Please see the attached graphic that shows the East Park District Service Map and the preliminary site layout for the Facility.
