Cobblestone Ranch Park Master Plan
Developing a master plan
Based on community feedback, Town Council selected Cobblestone Ranch as the next park to be developed. The Town has allocated $4 million to develop a roughly 10-acre parcel as the first phase of the park. Before this neighborhood component can be designed, an overall master plan for the 168-acre site is needed. The site is generally bounded by Castle Oaks Drive to the south, Arabella Drive to the West, Cherry Creek Trail to the east, and McMurdo Gulch to the north.
The Town has contracted with Norris Design to help work through the planning process of developing a master plan for the park. We would like to invite residents to provide feedback before the plan is finalized. Norris Design has previously worked with the Town on the development of Deputy Zack S. Parrish III Memorial Park, Wrangler Park, and the redesign of Castle North Park.
An open house was held in August 2019 in which Norris Design started the master planning process by presenting opportunities and constraints, as well as sharing information, related to potential design elements. The Town's Park Planning staff, along with the design team held a brief hands-on design discussion and collected resident feedback. Two concepts boards were presented, as well as, image boards to help attendees brainstorm and discuss potential ideas.
Those that attended the meeting, provided feedback through an online survey. We received feedback from 136 respondents. The information was summarized and given to Norris Design. They will be using that data, along with the feedback from the open house, to develop a tentative master park plan.
A future meeting is planned for October to present design options and to finalize the plan, which will then be presented to Town Council for final approval.
