CHERRY CREEK VISTA PARK & RECREATION DISTRICT
Cherry Creek Vista Parks & Recreation District owns and maintains six tennis courts, a swimming pool, five parks, and four playgrounds. The District also maintains 2.6 miles of county rights-of-way along Havana Street, Orchard Road, and portions of Cherry Creek Drive. The District also maintains the adjacent brick privacy fence along those same rights-of-way.
IMPORTANT NEWS AND UPDATES
**STORM UPDATE: If any dangerous conditions are encountered at the parks such as downed trees or power lines, please stay away and call 911! Your local police and fire department will be on call until the storm subsides!
Thanks to everyone who alerted the district that a tree has blown over onto a section of the brick fence across from the swimming pool at Orchard Park!
South Metro Fire has been alerted and will check the site for any potential issues until the storm is over and we can get the area cleaned up and repaired. Please contact these emergency resources first, and stay home and safe!
If residents need to reach someone at the district during this weather event, please call or email at: 303-482-1002 or firstname.lastname@example.org
**Storm Alert: JBK is preparing for a potentially large and challenging storm. The storm totals are all over the board with anywhere from 6-12″ of heavy, wet snow. In addition, 60 mile-an-hour winds are expected. As always, JBK will make truck plowing a priority so as to keep the main roads open. Sidewalk shoveling and ATV plowing will take place once the storm has subsided and the threat of a blizzard is over. These heavier storms make the clearing of ATV routes difficult. Should the snow become too heavy for the ATV’s to push, we will contact managers to approve the use of snowblowers or hand shoveling. Keeping our employees safe is our top priority. Please be patient as these large storms slow the relocation process.
This has been one of the snowiest year’s we have had in a while in Colorado! We are seeing snow stick around longer than in previous years. The Board is actively researching cost analysis and priority areas. Please contact the district manager for questions: 303-482-1002.
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.
Construction for the Lakeview Park Grant is set to begin April 1, 2019. A more detailed plan will be posted soon. The park will be closed for approximately two months for irrigation and playground renovation. Please visit the Lakeview Park page for newly updated grant overview, including timelines and details of the grant project.
Cherry Creek Vista II Park (soon to be Sunrise Vista Park). 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 email@example.com.
The District wishes to thank all who participated in the online and paper survey at the special walk-around and public special meeting on February 22nd at the park.
The results of the survey can be found here: Survey Summary
Updates on the plan options are forthcoming, so stay tuned.
Thanks for your input! The CCVPRD Board of Directors
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. Direct all lacrosse goal practice into the center of fields. You may need to chase the balls further, but will keep neighbors and property happy and safe!
Pool registration is available HERE
As we continue to try to increase communications among residents and reduce expenses, regular meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm at 9300 East Belleview Ave., St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, in Greenwood Village, CO.
The only exceptions: There will not be regularly scheduled meetings in February, July, and December.
The District is separate from the homeowner’s associations in the area which are managed by different boards and which have different functions within the community.
This map shows the ATV route that JBK does for snow removal. Also, CCVPRD does various spots on Orchard as well as high traffic park areas.
Arapahoe County has plow routes on their website that anyone can view: https://www.arapahoegov.com/DocumentCenter/View/3322
Wildlife and you ….
The Board would like to remind all resident to not feed wildlife at any park! Peanuts and sunflower seeds 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!
