Skatepark Construction
Skatepark construction

As the Bohn Park Recovery Project progresses, please remember to stay out of the enclosed vicinity, as it is an active construction site.

Bohn Park Phase II construction is anticipated to continue through late October. Over the course of the next several weeks, the Phase II contractor will be reconstructing the east side trail connection, from the Bohn Park 2nd Ave. entrance to the dog park. During this time, there will be different closures along sections of the east trail. The dog park, multipurpose field, and dirt jump bike park will be accessible from the outlot near Welch Dr., and/or along the trail between Lyons Middle/Senior High and Welch Dr. 

In addition, there are elements of the Phase II project that still need to be completed within the completed Phase I project area, including a pumphouse and intake for irrigation, which will impact use
Skatepark construction is also underway; however, it won't be available for use until final completion of Phase II, which is currently slated for late October.

The Town and its contractors ask for the public's assistance to be mindful of active construction sites and associated closures. Please stay out of all construction areas.

Lyons Valley River Park is still an active construction site, with several large excavators and earth movers. The contractors and the Town request your continued cooperation to stay out of the park, until the project is complete. Landscaping will begin later this month, and machinery will still be present to move boulders and rocks.
