Boones Ferry Park Master Plan
The Parks and Recreation Department is welcoming public feedback as part of the Master Planning process for Boones Ferry Park. The existing seven-acre park is located adjacent to almost four acres of forested waterfront property to the east, three undeveloped acres to the west between the railroad tracks and Boones Ferry Road and three forested acres to the north (see map). Three conceptual plans have been presented with various elements that were suggested as part of a previous community engagement process. Community members are asked to share their feedback and preferences for development, which include: greater river access, preserving natural areas, nature play, a dog park, wooded trail system and a number of other options. The initial deadline to submit online feedback was December 31, 2017 however this deadline has been extended until January 15, 2018.

The Boones Ferry Park master-planning effort started on Sept. 5 when more than 40 community members gathered in Boones Ferry Park and shared their ideas for the future of the park. Design Concepts, a landscape architecture and planning firm sub-contracting for GreenPlay, LLC, reviewed the findings from the first workshop and presented the proposed concepts on Oct. 26. At the workshop, participants broke out into groups and discussed the proposed plans, offering valuable feedback for staff and consultants.
NOTE: The proposed concepts are presented in a way to gather feedback regarding specific elements and features and are not meant to be considered final plans. Once the online surveys have closed, a final plan will be created that will take into account the feedback received from each proposed conceptual plan.
