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 spearheaded 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 the recent replacement of the south playground in 2014 and the north playground planned for 2015.
For general information about the park, please visit the Kensington Park website.
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 replace of the south playground at Kensington Park near Reed Place. The project is now complete and the new playground, swings & mini shelter are open for use!
North Playground Replacement Project
The City has funding to replace the playground north of Longs Peak Avenue in 2014/2015. If you are part of the Kensington Neighborhood, please stop by the neighborhood meeting at the south playground on July 22, 2014 from 6-8 pm. Staff will be available to provide an update on the project and listen to input from the community.
