North Cheyenne Cañon: master plan public meeting

North Cheyenne Cañon: What do you love? What do you want it to be like?

The City's historic mountain park is set to get lots of attention over the next eight months as the City's Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department teams up with community residents to develop an updated Master and Management Plan for the popular North Cheyenne Cañon Park.

The Master and Management Plan will focus on a little over 1,855 acres of land, including the core of the park property as well as the adjacent Cresta and Stratton Forest Open Spaces. Additionally, the plan will encompass the property added to the park from the recent land exchange with the Broadmoor. The plan will also focus on trail connections between the park and the adjacent open space properties, including Stratton and Stratton Preserve Open Spaces.

The existing North Cheyenne Cañon Park master plan was developed in 1999. Since that time, park use has significantly increased and recreational needs have expanded and changed, creating impacts on the natural resources of the park.
