This is the first in a series of at least three planned community forums that will help inform the park's master planA plan for the development of a portion of the city that contains proposed land uses, a generalized transportation system, and the relationship of the area included in the plan to surrounding property..

The master plan will have three focus areas: creating an active sports hub, integrating Sand Creek and nature, and community park amenities. It's expected that the park will be comparable to Memorial or John Venezia community parks, with sports fields and a playground.
