About the Project
Public Meeting Notice
Attend a special presentation on the new park project at the Potter’s House Church parcel.
Four Square Mile Neighborhood
This is the first opportunity for members of the public to get a project overview and share input on desired park amenities.
Planning is underway for a new neighborhood park within the future multi-family and paired-home housing community being planned for the Potter's House Church parcel at 9495 E. Florida Ave. The dedicated public park will provide Four Square Mile residents and surrounding communities with a public greenspace and site for outdoor recreation opportunities close to home.
Arcadia Park fills a gap in neighborhood park needs and will add value to the community, as determined by the Four Square Mile Recreation Needs and Opportunities Assessment (2015). Historically, residents of this diverse urban area have faced barriers in access to nearby nature and recreation areas, in part due to busy roadways separating neighborhoods from local parks and trails.
DHI Communities, with their landscape architecture firm Norris Design, is collaborating with Open Spaces on the park planning and design. Upon completion, Arcadia Park will be owned and managed by Arapahoe County Open Spaces.
Note: This is a first of its kind partnership for the Open Spaces Department. Park planning is starting now so that the park can be constructed at the same time as the residential development. The residential development is still going through the land-use approval process and Open Spaces has no say in whether the project will or will not be approved. However, a park project will be part of any major redevelopment moving forward on the 32-acre parcel.

Public Outreach and Engagement
Community input on desired park amenities will be gathered through a series of outreach activities, starting with the Dec. 8 public meeting, followed by an online survey open for 30 days (Dec. 8, 2021-Jan. 9, 2022), and a public meeting in Spring 2022 to present park design concepts for feedback.
