The Vail Town Council will review the proposed final design concept for renovation of Booth Creek Park at its regular meeting Tuesday, Aug. 4. The item is listed sixth on the meeting agenda which begins at 6 p.m. in the Vail Town Council
The Town Council is being asked to review and approve the proposed design concept so the project can move forward to the Planning and Environmental Commission and Design Review Board in preparation for construction next spring.
The town staff has been working on the design concepts since 2014 following a series of community meetings that were used to collect ideas and preferences for the renovation. Design components included in the recommended design are as follows:
- Natural areas
- Parallel parking on Manns Ranch Road
- Looped paved path using the existing bike path. This would also be the accessible route through the park
- Open turf grass area as a significant design element
- Double, hard-surface, post tensioned concrete tennis court
- Playground with natural elements and artistic components
- Public restroom, 2-stall, 3 season, accessible and sensitive to the natural setting
- Picnic shelter for 2 to 3 picnic tables with other picnic tables, benches and bike racks throughout the park
Located at 2900 Manns Ranch Road in East Vail, Booth Creek Park is the last of Vail’s six neighborhood parks in line for a major renovation. The town has budgeted $2.45 million in 2016 to improve the quality, character and functionality of the park to be consistent with the types of recreation facilities available in Vail’s other neighborhood parks.
