Centennial Center Park Expansion
From 2017 to 2019 the City’s staff worked on the Centennial Center Park Master Plan(PDF, 12MB). During this time, Staff explored different options and layouts for the proposed expansion of the Park. The different options were presented to the Open Space Advisory Board, City Council and Centennial residents. Feedback from meetings with these groups provided the direction needed to finalize the conceptual layout for the Park. It also informed the phases of construction.
The construction is anticipated to occur as shown below:
- Installation of necessary infrastructure, such as water, sewer, electric, gas and storm water.
- Construction of restrooms at the Bluff, area around the Bluff, the Community Pavilion, the Folley and the Gazebo.
- Construction of sidewalks, the landscaped walks (Ramble), Picnic Grove, expanded parking lot and Multi-Purpose Lawn.
This project is funded with a $500,000 Arapahoe County Open Spaces Grant along with the Arapahoe County Shareback Tax, a voter-approved quarter cent Use Tax. Over half of the revenues from the tax directly support community partners - cities, towns and recreation districts through the County's Grant and Shareback programs.
Safety Note: Why is there a fence around part of the Centennial Center Park? The fence helps safeguard valuable construction equipment from possible vandalism or theft, and it protects any employees or pedestrians passing by the construction site. So, please be patient around the construction zone. The crews are trying to keep you safe.
Project Status: Construction is underway.
Estimated Completion Date: Spring 2023
