BEAR RIVER PARK - MASTER PLAN UPDATE


The City of Steamboat Springs Parks & Community Services Department, in conjunction with the National Parks Service and Oxbow Design Collaborative, is working to update the Bear River Park master plan. 


If you are interested in providing feedback or suggestions on the future uses and development of Bear River Park, we encourage you to visit the website listed below and take our quick survey. 

www.bearriverpark.com 


There will also be a series of public meetings to further discuss the master plan. Dates for future meetings will be posted here once determined. 

The goal of this planning effort is to create a viable, financially feasible master plan for the site and to guide the next phase of improvements to the park. This plan is an update to the 2004 park master plan and will incorporate the most efficient, sustainable and desirable uses of the park space, through extensive community participation. The end result will be a park that is consistently used by a diverse array of park users and will be one that is supported and stewarded by the community. 

This planning process will provide a forum for the evaluation of all ideas and comments which will lead to the development of preferred design alternatives for the space. 
Public outreach and communication will occur through a number of outlets, including, three public open houses, news media, the City of Steamboat Springs website, surveys and online engagement.
