The Carbon Valley Parks and Recreation District finalized a feasibility study in late 2019 regarding the growth of the District’s services and programs. The purpose of the study was to determine how best to meet the needs of the growing population the District serves. Community members had multiple opportunities to give feedback about their recreation wants and needs via statistically valid mail surveys, online surveys, open houses, community stakeholder meetings, and intercept events. 

With aging facilities at maximum capacity (even before reductions due to Covid) and growing demand for an increase in both existing and new services, the District is at a critical point in delivering on the top three priorities that over 700 residents and stakeholders identified as part of the feasibility study’s community engagement process. 

  • A new outdoor pool and water park with a full-service recreation center encompassing 32,000 SQ FT located on Firestone’s Central Park land (next to the library)
  • A new 1,000 SQ FT senior / older adult fitness room next to the lounge at the existing senior center in Frederick
  • Four new baseball / softball fields with restrooms and concessions to accommodate tournaments, in addition to tennis and pickleball courts; located on land at Firestone’s Central Park (next to the library)
