Commerce City celebrates groundbreaking for second of three parks promised to voters

Elected officials, elementary school students, and residents broke ground today on the new Turnberry neighborhood park. The project is one of five capital improvements funded by a 1-percent sales and use tax increase approved by voters in 2013 that will build, operate and maintain new parks, recreation and road projects throughout the community.

Commerce City committed to complete five projects by Jan. 1, 2019, including:
1. Three new neighborhood parks :
• Fronterra (opened to public August 2015)
• Turnberry
• Villages at Buffalo Run East
2. Widening of Tower Road from 80th to 103rd avenues
3. A new recreation center at Second Creek, near Highway 2 and 112th Avenue
4. New additions to the existing recreation center
5. Outdoor leisure pool - Paradice Island Pool at Pioneer Park (opened to public July 2015)

The community selected a park theme inspired by Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” which was incorporated in the groundbreaking with a brief theatrical production from the second grade class of Turnberry Elementary School and city council members. One of three new neighborhood parks, the 9.5-acre site will open this summer and will include a multi-use hard court, playground, field and courts, picnic shelters and restrooms.
