Santa Rita Park

Santa Rita Park is a heavily used park space within the City of Durango parks system.  From May through November 2021, site construction will be occurring to replace park amenities that were displaced by development of the Santa Rita Water Reclamation Facility (SRWRF) including a lighted basketball court, two lighted sand volleyball courts and a large picnic pavilion. Access to the Santa Rita Park playing field, playground and river will remain open during construction.

Multiple years of construction disturbance has displaced and affected public use of the park.  The implementation of park improvements at Santa Rita Park in 2021 will complete the transformation at Santa Rita comprising public park amenities and state-of-the-art water treatment infrastructure.

Pickleball Courts and Dog Park at Community Park at Three Springs

The design process was initiated in April 2021 for the development of eight (8) lit pickleball courts and an approximate 2-acre fenced dog park at Three Springs.  The development of the pickleball courts and dog play/park area will be the first phase of implementation of the Durango Community Park at Three Springs.  The new park area will be accessed from the proximity of Bocea Ranch Parkway and Sage View Street.

Public and stakeholder outreach will begin in June 2021 with design documentation anticipated to be completed by late November 2021.  Construction of the new pickleball court and dog park amenities is scheduled to begin in early spring 2022.
