Erie Community Park | The Town's Gathering Place
Erie Community Park lies in the heart of Old Town Erie and is a continuation of the new civic precinct Erie recently developed. This 40-acre park provide services to the entire community and serves as a central gathering space throughout the year. In November 2008, Design Concepts began working with Erie and, through a series of public meetings, was successful in getting a master plan approved by the Board of Trustees in February, 2009. The approved Master Plan includes an amphitheater with seating up to 6,000, a civic green, adventure playground, picnic grove, four-plex softball complex, multi-use field, and four tennis courts. It also includes a prairie discovery nature trail, parking, and multiple linkages to the town’s numerous walking paths. We completed construction documents for the $5,800,000 park in May, 2009. Construction began in July, 2009, and the facility was dedicated and opened April, 2010.
The town received a $175,000 grant from Encana Oil and Gas Community Investment Program for environmentally friendly lighting at the baseball fields, and a $199,391 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado that covered the cost of one of the fields.
