Cornerstone Park Final Site Plan, 2nd Amendment
The Cornerstone Park Final Site Plan, 2nd Amendment was approved by South Suburban Parks and Recreation’s Board of Directors on November 13, 2019. The Board’s decision followed public comments, and a presentation from South Suburban staff outlining the need for the proposed changes and mitigation efforts to address concerns about additional noise and lighting, and impacts on park users and wildlife.
The Board’s decision is consistent with South Suburban’s Master Plan, adopted in 2017, which identified the need for multi-purpose field improvements, active adult amenities and programs, and conservation of water resources.
Current regional park amenities include three ballfields, seven multi-purpose fields, an active adult area including Pickleball courts, Colorado Journey miniature golf, playground, spray ground, inline hockey, a skate park, basketball court, rentable pavilions and parking.
The Cornerstone Park Final Site Plan, 2nd Amendment includes the following future improvements to the park:
- converting the seven existing bluegrass multi-purpose fields to synthetic turf with sports lighting,
- adding a road between the existing parking lots,
- adding six lighted Pickleball courts (12 total courts),
- adding lighting to the existing horseshoe pits,
- formalizing the social trail connection at the northeast corner of the park,
- planting trees for noise mitigation at the Pickleball courts.
In 2020, two bluegrass multi-purpose fields will be converted to synthetic turf with sports lighting; accessible routes to these fields will be constructed; and landscape plantings around the Pickleball courts will be installed. The multi-use field lighting system features full-cut off, LED fixtures with anti-glare technology that will eliminate light trespass beyond the fields. There is no time frame or funding currently identified for the additional Pickleball courts or other improvements identified on the approvedSite Plan.
