DeLong Park Planning

DeLong Park sign on red rock

In December 2017 the City purchased the Delong property at 395 23rd Street for the purpose of creating a neighborhood park, which will fill a void in the parks master planning process for the community. The new neighborhood park will be located on 23rd Street, between East Street and Table Heights Drive. The planning process for the new park is just beginning. The area is a blank slate with no plans currently in place; the Parks, Recreation and Museums Advisory Board (PRMAB) is seeking public input on how the area should be developed.

The intent of the public process is to generate ideas from the community. For questions on the public process, please contact Stacy Turner, 303-384-8191 or sturner@cityofgolden.net.

I appreciated the opportunity to meet regarding DeLong Park. After listening to the most recent discussion, I envision: 1. The addition of a few benches; however, leaving the area in a relatively natural state2. Allowing access only from 23rd Street.To Parks & Rec. staff: Thanks for your efforts thus far! :) John McEncroe

Please consider being efficient with water when building the park using alternatives like subsurface irrigation, etc....

To appeal to a wide range of demographics and stay consistent with the historical nature of the site, we are generally in support of a more natural focused plan depicted in Concept #1 although without large picnic or shade structures & other high maintenance amenities. The nearby Southridge park already provides active sports play and picnic structure, and Discovery Park is an excellent source of interpretive play.Preferred amenities for DeLong Park are wooden bridge, small turf area surrounded by native grasses and a walking path that can transition into single track hike/bike on the hills, and the educating pollinator and xeric garden beds. Small play area or structure for younger children and possibly a unique element like tire swing on the large tree for older age groups. We echo the Stoecker's sentiments in not providing any public restroom facilities on the site, due to relatively small size of park and the close proximity to many neighboring residents.

I live very close to the park and have a 3 year old. I would like a play structure for him to enjoy for years to come. I am very opposed to having any toilet facilities at the park.
