Boulder’s Park Committee is charged with formulating recommendations to the Town Council on Town grounds and Town Park usage. Over the years, the committee has successfully secured hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars worth of donated labor, materials, and money.
Three, small, “pocket parks” provide seating and/or landscaped breaks: 1) immediately north of the Post Office, 2) another south of the Post Office, and 3) between the Firehouse and Highway 12. Boulder fondly remembers Bob and Naomi Brems who were the force behind the landscape maintenance of these areas.
The old playground equipment has been refurbished and new equipment has been purchased. A pickleball court is available for all age players. Covered shelter and the Community Freebox are located along the north side of the Firehouse. Former Town Councilmember Tom Jerome provided the native landscaping vision (and much of the planting) for the front grounds. Todd Campbell generously created and donated the petroglyph stone, just north of the front building sidewalk.
The grounds are always well used. Congratulations on a beautiful job done by the Park Committee and dozens of volunteers.
What is now referred to as the Town Park occupies the acreage south 100 South, formerly leased from the BLM, now owned by the Town. The vision for this area features open space and inviting pathways, along with a covered pavilion and restrooms. A footbridge and cattle-guarded vehicle entry provide access to the north end of the park. The footpath connects, via human gate, to the walking path alongside Hwy 12 at the southwest end of the park.
The Park Committee has established guidelines for residents who wish to install a memorial bench or other physical amenity within the park.
Suggestions from the public are always welcome!
