Land for this park (8.2 acres) was acquired in 2006 and is currently undeveloped. Bond funds in the amount of $60,000 have been earmarked for construction.
Why is it important?
This park land has remained undeveloped for approximately 13 years. The large subdivision is nearly built out and there are no nearby parks. The parks location, native vegetation, and strong view shed suggest a park with nature trails and places for citizens to meet and enjoy views to the valley below will enable the creation of a successful park.
What is the current status?
Park planners have met with neighborhood residents and HOA representatives for basic facility planning. Due to the park site’s topography and wooded nature, limited development is recommended to preserve the existing resources. An initial plan was prepared which includes a woodland hiking trail with a pavilion/scenic overlook provided at the trailhead access point. The HOA will also include trails around a pond used for storm water.
When will it be completed?
This project is planned for completion in Phase 1 implementation of the bond projects. Design of the park will begin after completion of the Park System Master Plan, expected to be complete in fall of 2020.
How is it funded?
Funding will be provided by the bond issue that Fayetteville voters approved in April of 2019. Some work is expected to be done by volunteers and the HOA.
