Town Park Planned Updates

What Exactly is being updated?

Town Park, including a parcel known as the entryway site, is the area along Brush Creek Rd. near the intersection of Brush Creek Road & Highline Road. It currently includes the rodeo grounds, Snowmass Village Recreation Center, and several park amenities.

Town Park Master Planning

In 2003 staff, Town Council, and the community hired a consultant team and began planning and designing to construct the entryway parcel. Once the conceptual "Entryway Master Plan" was refined, the design and construction of the Recreation Center and Pool began in August of 2005. Planning and construction continued for the next 3 years.

The final phase, known as the entryway site includes the rodeo arena area and the Visitor Center site. However, these efforts we put on hold due to the 2008 economic recession. This project is now included in the Town’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP).

Staff expect to re-start this project in 2018.

Potential Program Elements

Potential program elements for the Rodeo Arena area and the Visitor Center site were identified through the 2009 Entryway Master Plan, the 2007 Community Survey, the 2010 Comprehensive Plan, and ideas suggested by Council and staff.
