Funding

The budget for the entire project is approximately $4 million dollars.

The Parks and Recreation Department was awarded two grants to help with the renovation:

  • $400,000 from Jefferson County Open Space for Phase I
  • $350,000 from Get Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) for Phase II

The remaining cost for the project is funded by the City's Open Space Fund and Conservation Trust Fund (Lottery dollars).

Phase I Complete

The Prospect Park Master Plan was created to enhance user experience. A variety of improvements will serve to make existing activity areas more user friendly, and create new recreation opportunities throughout the park. Phase I was completed in 2018 and Phase II construction will begin soon. Learn more about phase I renovations here. 

Phase II

Phase II construction will include replacing the picnic pavilion, replacing the tennis court with pickleball courts, improving the road, parking lots, and sidewalks in the Park, replacing the eastern playground, and improving irrigation and landscaping throughout the Park.
