It’s been nearly eight years since ECI completed the first phase of Erie Community Park, and we’re back for round two! The first phase marked a pinnacle moment for ECI – and the Town of Erie – as it included the world’s first permanent outdoor Street League-certified skateboarding park. Since its opening in January 2013, the park has been used by residents and visitors alike as a place to gather and recreate. We are thrilled to announce that ECI has been selected as the general contractor to finish the last phase of this community gem.
Erie Community Park, located at 450 Powers Street, currently spans 41 acres and features ballfields, playground, shaded seating areas, and tennis courts. The new phase will expand on this area and include:
- Custom shelter and restroom facility
- Basketball courts
- Asphalt bike pump track
- Energy awareness-themed playground
- Outdoor reading rooms
- Earthwork and drainage improvements
- Walking trails
ECI’s project team participated in a special groundbreaking ceremony in December 2020, along with several key players in the project: Town of Erie, Design Concepts, and Wember Inc. This project would not be possible without the generous grants from Great Outdoors Colorado, Department of Local Affairs, and the Regional Air Quality Council.
We look forward to sharing updates as the project progresses!
