Park Construction and Safety Updates
WINDEMERE PARK CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
Construction will be complete the first week in August. Irrigation and seeding is currently underway. Please walk on designated walk paths and keep footprints from humans and dogs off the native seeded area to help ensure its success!
Construction workers will be on-site South of the concrete pathway from: March 1-June 30 from 7:30 am-5:00 pm Mondays-Fridays and some weekends from 9:00 am-5:00 pm, weather dependent.
Please note, that all earth-moving operations are complete and that irrigation system installation, the playground footprint and drainage will be completed as soon as possible, though there have been some delays due to the wet and inclement weather experienced this April/May. Installation and seeding with follow shortly afterward.
Please avoid construction areas, including walking across the field and pathways South of the Cottonwood Creek concrete pathway during these times for your safety to protect equipment and unseen ground installations of irrigation, drainage and anchors, and to allow for new flower gardens and grass to establish. The outcome will include: new pathways, access barriers to protect the park, playground, rest/shade areas, and educational signage.

GREAT OUTDOORS COLORADO (GOCO)

Wildlife and you ….
The Board would like to remind all resident to not feed wildlife at any park! Peanuts and sunflower seeds were found at Windemere Park last week and will be cleaned up to help keep animals and humans safe. Adding human food to the mix will only threaten the animals and shared-use of the park with humans!
What to do: If you find any human food left out at parks, please contact the District’s management or landscaping company so we can help get it cleaned up. If you see someone leaving food out for animals, please share this important information with them–we all want to help keep these parks and landscapes safe and healthy for all!

Trash Can Replacement: Several trash cans from dog stations have been removed because they had deteriorated beyond safety and function. Replacement trash cans have been ordered and will be installed as soon as possible. Thanks from the Board and all the parks contractors and community for cleaning up after your dogs with provided bags and walking it home or to the nearest alternate trash can until these are replaced.
Please contact District Management to access the code to unlock the goals stored at all parks. Damaging or cutting locks or fencing to access pool, tennis courts, goals, or other properties is illegal and will result in action or removal or access or equipment. Please respect your parks and neighbor’s property by keeping ball play within fields and not next to fences and homes.
