Park and Facility Closure Update re: COVID-19
March 19, 2020
Cherry Creek Vista Park and Recreation District’s contractors and service providers are all open and following safe practices to deliver daily activities and functions for your community.
The District’s Board wants to assure everyone that basic maintenance provided by JBK, MPM Recreation Management, Circuit Rider of Colorado and others will continue, so rest assured the park trash will be collected and we will begin facility opening for the season when it is safe to do so!
On March 10th, Gov. Jared Polis declared a “state of emergency” here in Colorado, and the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 has risen past 160 since that time.
Please note that all facilities at the district will be closed until further notice. Walkways and fields are open for individual use, but groups should refrain from gathering until further notice.
We encourage people to not use tennis courts, playgrounds and other public spaces where transmission might occur. PLEASE NOTE THESE FACILITIES WILL NOT BE CLEANED. If you do choose to use these spaces, please take in to account these best practices:
- The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Avoid sharing cups and eating utensils with others.
To keep your family, community and self safe, the board appreciates adult supervision while your kids are out of school and venture outside for needed activity and play to limit issues like potential exposure, vandalism, and especially to keep everyone healthy in our small community and beyond.
Additional information on COVID-19 is available by calling CO-Help at 303-389-1687 or 877-462-2911 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. (including weekends) or by emailing COHELP@RMPDC.org. Answers are available in English, Spanish, Mandarin and other languages. Additional information is available online from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Yours in health and safety,
The Board and Management for Cherry Creek Vista Park and Recreation District

Dear Community Residents and Stakeholders:
Thank you very much to all those who participated in the long-range strategic planning process in 2019! Whether you attended meetings, gave feedback at planning sessions, or helped with the community survey, your input was incredibly valuable.
The photos above are an example digital rendering for potential renovations to the pool facility.
Community Room Addition Overview

Dimensions: Approximately 23ft x 42ft
Capacity: Approximately 60-130 people
*Design is conceptual. All trees and shrubs are for context only. Existing site conditions will not be changed.**All sizes and capacities are conceptual in nature. Additional design and research is required to determine final layout.
Additional Notes: Existing landscape to remain / expand. Shade structures to remain / expand. Connect current snack area to new community space. Allow community room to be accessed year round. Possible addition of 1 bathroom. Remodel interior locker rooms. Remodel snack area, life guard space, and entry. Potential for more efficient appliances, fixtures, and solar. Potential to repair concrete issues in pool deck and stairs. Potential to remodel building exterior.
Please check out the District’s long range capital improvements plan that the community referred to the Board after a year long strategic planning process that identified high priority capital improvements:
Estimated costs for these priority projects:
Vista II Park:
Due to snow impacts, Goodland Construction plans to continue work when snow and ground thaw allow for sod and landscape material planting. Thank you for your continued patience!
Thank you to all that attended the Lakeview Park dedication. It was a great success.
Prairie Vista Park Goats:
Goat mowing was another success. Thank you all for coming to see them and for your continued support. We look forward to the goats visiting us again in the spring, check back here for more updates.
Cherry Creek Vista II Park (Sunrise Vista Park):
Construction is well underway for Vista II Park. You can find Design Plans and an updated Timeline on the Vista II Park page.
Please avoid the construction zones during this project for your safety and efficiency of the project. Construction will include: full irrigation system replacement, new playground equipment, tennis court, culvert crossing, basketball court, pathways, benches, tables, landscaping and signage.
Thanks to our partners: Arapahoe County Open Space, for its grant funding this planning process, Cherry Creek Vista II HOA for the transfer of the park to the District, and to the park planning professionals and community members for making the park revitalization possible.
Vista II Grant Information: Vista II Project Grant Please note that the grant timeline was changed to 2018-2019 for all monthly date milestones due to property ownership title issues that are now clear, and the significant permitting and planning approvals related the culvert that is included in the plan. Please check out the park overview here.
For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lakeview Cell Tower Update:
The Board has confirmed that the modified design is an expansion under the current lease agreement with the cell tower lessee, Crown Castle. Two additional providers will be added within the current leased area, which will include a larger service building and a mono-pine tower that will be located to the West of the building space, to replace the current flag pole tower. In consideration for the change in design and re-location of the tower, Crown Castle will be installing additional trees and shrubs surrounding the building. Once the design is submitted to Arapahoe County for approval, the submittal will be available here. Arapahoe County zoning, planning and official notices will be a part of this approval process, outside the purview of the district and its board.
Please note, the District was obligated to adhere to the terms of the current, which included this lease expansion option. Verizon Wireless is planning to occupy one of the new tower locations, and will present its anticipated coverage maps at the district’s October board meeting, scheduled on Monday, October 21, at 6 pm at the community meeting room, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 9300 E Belleview Road, Englewood, CO 80111.
Construction for Lakeview Park has been completed, save for a couple of signs still to be installed. Just a reminder to let the district know if any of the new amenities appear to be damaged or defective during the 1-year warranty period on work. Thank you for your support and enjoy the park! We are excited about the new improvements!
You can find a copy of the Lakeview Park page to find more details on the project.
As you might be aware, a new fence has been constructed at Peakview Park. The District was not consulted on the construction of the fence. The District reached out to the City of Centennial and property owner, but due to the fact the fence falls on private property, the District’s perspective was not considered.
