Commerce City’s new Fronterra Park opens

Commerce City celebrated the opening of the new Fronterra Park tonight with a back to school picnic. The neighborhood park is the second voter-approved project completed in the $137 million capital improvement program, which will complete five projects by Jan. 1, 2019.

Located at 10020 Joplin Street, adjacent to Second Creek Elementary and Stuart Middle Schools, Fronterra Park is a great asset to local residents and the surrounding neighborhoods. The nearly 20-acre park features:
• Hillside slide
• Small skate area
• Tortoise and hare theme walking/jogging trails
• Two graded play fields
• Playground
• Climbing boulders
• Picnic area with shelter
• Multi-use hard court for informal/drop-in basketball, hopscotch, roller hockey, etc.
• Three fitness stations with horizontal ladder, dot drill exercise, agility drill exercise, horizontal bars, inclined crunch bench and air walker
• Sustainable landscaping
• Low-level lighting for safety
• ADA accessible
• Restroom

The neighborhood park is one of five projects funded by a 1-percent sales and use tax increase approved by voters in 2013 to build, operate and maintain five projects in five years. The projects include:
• Three new neighborhood parks (Fronterra, Turnberry and Villages at Buffalo Run East)
• Widening of Tower Road from 80th to 103rd avenues
• New recreation center near 112th Avenue and Highway 2
• Expansion of the existing recreation center
• New outdoor pool at Pioneer Park

Every project in the program is currently underway to meet the Jan. 1, 2019 deadline. The new outdoor pool – known as Paradice Island – was completed July 2015. Construction contracts for the remaining two neighborhood parks and Tower Road widening are expected to be bid later this year. Programming activities for both recreation centers will inform the design of the facilities, with a request for proposals being issued by the end of 2015.
