Zehren and Associates was retained by the Town of New Castle to assist the community in developing the program, plan and design for a new sports park. Pedro Campos led the team through a community engagement process to select the preferred layout and program of amenities. ZAA worked closely with the Town Staff to design the project so most of the work could be self-performed by the Town.
The Plan was developed in 2016, and implemented in 2017 and 2018. The project was funded through a GOCO Local Parks and Recreation grant as well as a grant from the Oil and Natural gas industry. The plan includes new pickle ball and tennis courts, a new playground, picnic shelter, lawn play areas, and access trails and paths.
Bear Dance Park is located near the Lakota Canyon Ranch neighborhood in New Castle, CO.
