Kensington Park Master Plan & Renewal

Welcome to the Kensington Park Master Plan & Renewal project website. Here you will find information about the current efforts to implement the Kensington Park Master Plan improvements and renew the park. Kensington Park is a linear park located east of downtown at 100 E. Longs Peak Avenue.

The Kensington Park Master Plan was completed in 2005 and was prompted by the Kensington Can! Revitalization Plan dated July, 2004. Phases 1 and 2 of the master-planned improvements have been completed which included bridge replacement, a new restroom, accessible parking, a kiosk, basketball court, labyrinth and community gathering space adjacent to Longs Peak Avenue. Additional phases of the Master Plan are being implemented as funding allows with plans for replacement of the south playground in 2013.

For general information about the park, please visit the Kensington Park website.

 

What's New?

South Playground Replacement Project

A combination of City-funding, a private donation from the Guadalupe Charitable Trust, a Neighborhood Improvement Grant (NIG), and a bike rack donation from LiveWell Longmont have made it possible to move forward on replacement of the south playground at Kensington Park near Reed Place. The 2005 Master Plan is being utilized for guidance and a public meeting was held on August 9, 2012 to obtain additional neighborhood input on the playground design.

Please view a drawing of the new playground under Plans & Reports.
