McIntosh District Park Trail Connection Project


Project Overview

The McIntosh District Park Phase 4 project will provide two trail connections from the park loop trail. One connection will be on the west end of Dawson Park to 17th Avenue at the Lakeshore Drive intersection. The second connection will be from the west end of the current concrete trail terminus north of Lake McIntosh Farms, to 17th Avenue. These trails will improve connectivity for residents to the street system and to trail extensions planned in the future.


What's New?

This project is now on hold due to the September 2013 flood. Funding for St Vrain Greenway Phase 12 design and construction has been reallocated to St Vrain Greenway trail flood repair. Project funding will be restored at a date as yet to be determined. For information on the flood repair projects, link here

Public Process

A public open house was held on Thursday December 6, 2012. Potential trail connection alignments were available for public viewing and comments. A summary of those comments is available at the link below.
