Erie Community Park
Erie Community Park lies in the heart of Old Town Erie and is a continuation of the new civic precinct the Town has recently begun to develop. 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 the Town 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 that can hold up to 6,000 people, a civic green, an adventure playground, a picnic grove, a 4-plex softball complex, multi-use field, 4 tennis courts, a prairie discovery nature trail, parking, and multiple linkages to the Town’s many walking paths. Design Concepts completed construction documents for the entire $5,800,000 park in May 2009. The project began construction in July 2009, with the opening dedication in April of 2010.
The town also received a $175,000 grant from Encana Oil & 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.
