Phase 1 Sayre Park improvements are continuing the week of October 12, 2020 as part of the Sayre Park Master Plan.
The work includes temporary relocation of utility lines in preparation for demolition and construction of a new basketball court and installation of ADA compliant paths. This phase of the project will also include new stairs to the ballfield.
Work began October 13, 2020 to temporarily move utility poles in Sayre Park. Demolition and construction activities are anticipated to take place later in October or early November.
Phase I of the Sayre Park Plan includes the following objectives:
- Demolition of the old basketball court and gazebo
- Site prep and construction of 3 new sports courts
- Installation of ADA curb ramps and pathways
- Drinking fountain w/ bottle filler and water service
- Landscaping and park entry beautification
- Irrigation modifications
- Install court lighting
- Wayfinding signage
- Furnishings, benches and trash receptacles
Crews installed new conduits from the north side of the park to the south side, parallel to the basketball and tennis courts, earlier this summer to accommodate underground telecommunications lines as part of the expanded basketball court project and future expansion of the tennis courts.
Phase 1 of the project is anticipated to be completed later this year and cost $246,422. The project is being supported by generous donations from Grand River Paving, Game On Camps and Hoop d’Ville, which cover approximately 60 percent of the project costs. The remainder of the project is being paid for by Parks Impact Fees, which can only be used for park improvements.
The City of Glenwood Springs is replacing the water line beneath South Hyland Drive through October 30, 2020. South Hyland Drive is closed to through traffic with limited access to businesses and parking. The north parking lots at Sayre are closed due to this work.
