Public invited to final meeting for Carmody Park’s first master plan

The City of Lakewood will host a third and final public meeting to gather input for Carmody Park’s master plan at 6 p.m., Thurs, Dec. 5 at Carmody Middle School, 2050 S. Kipling St.

A brief presentation of the preferred master plan concept for the site will be given first followed by an open house to gather comments on the preferred plan, which will be used to guide future improvements.  The master plan is due to be completed by January 2014.

Carmody Park encompasses approximately 34 acres that was originally developed by Foothills Parks and Recreation District in the 1970s.  The City took ownership of the site and facilities in 2000 and completed recreation center modifications in 2002.  The City deconstructed the adjacent racquetball center in 2011.  Currently, the site includes the Carmody Recreation Center (51,355 square feet), four soccer fields, a basketball court, a playground, 232 parking spaces and a 1,300-square-foot picnic pavilion that can be reserved.  The City has retained the services of Mundis Bishop to assist with developing the master plan.

Members of the public can contact the Department of Community Resources at 303-987-7800 or email with any questions or comments.  For more information, please contact Allison Scheck at 303-987-7872 or
