Let's Finish Erie Community Park

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Nestled between the Erie Community Library of High Plains Library District, Erie Community Center, an already active community park and Erie Medical Center, sits a wonderful and unique opportunity to create the ultimate community friendly Colorado experience for the Erie community’s fitness enthusiasts, cyclists, youth, active adults and everyone in between. While all parks are vital to communities, Erie Community Park Final Phase is an opportunity to integrate a community health and fitness component, seamlessly incorporated with a bike pump track, distinctive play equipment, sport courts, shelters and passive use areas. Finishing Erie Community Park will provide the Erie community to get outdoors to learn, recreate and socialize for generations to come. The project will include earthwork, drainage improvements, utilities, a custom shelter/restroom facility, walking trails, outdoor reading rooms, basketball courts, fitness amenities, sledding hill, asphalt bike pump track, and an energy awareness themed playground.

It takes a great team to complete this project, so we'd like to thank our project partners:

We would also like to thank our funding partners, Great Outdoors Colorado, Department of Local Affairs, and the Regional Air Quality Council who have contributed over $1.1M in grant funds for this project!

    Love the addition of the pump track. Will the pump track have a dirt track or just asphalt? Thanks.

    clarkendurance asked 7 months ago

    Thank you for your question.  This pump track will just have asphalt.

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link I was wondering why the plans on this page changed from the Master Plan that was accepted in March of last year (https://www.erieco.gov/DocumentCenter/View/10174/Erie-Community-Park-Final-Phase-Master-Plan?bidId=). The picture here looks to have about 15-20% less planned development and from what I can tell "native and meadows area" replaces the following: 21:Revolution Bike Park - asphalt and crusher fine trails (original has all ages/skill level pump track where this one has revolution bike park 22: Tot track learning area 24: Transition bike area with tunnel jump 25: Advanced bike area and trails 26: Skills and boulder course 27: Pump path loop 28: Spectator hill.

    While we are still building the Revolution Bike Park with beginner and advanced areas on the west side, we had to reduce the size due to the need for an adequately sized water quality area to the east to accommodate the new park.  Trees are not allowed in the water quality areas, so we did see some reduction in the amount of trees in that area.  There are 248 new trees proposed with this phase, adding to Erie's diverse tree canopy.

    Could you give us more specifics about the who/what/why of the water quality areas as they have greatly impacted the new design of the park when compared to the design from March 2020?

    LDickinson asked 8 months ago

    The updated design had to ensure that the water quality area was sized sufficiently for the entire park (including phase I and phase II).  The water quality area is a requirement to ensure that any runoff from the park is "treated" before it goes downstream and also contains water in the event of flooding events.

    This looks awesome! Two questions: what is the expected completion date of this? 2. Are the existing play structures being removed? Or am I overlooking them in the final design. Thanks!

    KPBarnholt asked 8 months ago

    Hi KPBarnholt,

    Thank you for your questions!  The projected completion date is December of 2021.  None of the existing play structures to the west are being removed.

    On behalf of the BMX community, who is the designer/builder for the pump track?

    jeffalipit asked 9 months ago

    Thank you for your question!  The asphalt bike pump track is being designed and built by Velosolutions and American Ramp Company.
