Mehaffey Community Park is a 63 acre regional park located in west Loveland. This undeveloped site required extensive excavation and grading. Park features include adventure playground with one-of-a-kind glass fiber reinforced concrete climbing and retaining walls that simulate natural stone properties and shade shelters, a custom skatepark and post tension tennis courts. The playground contains a waterfall feature with a small stream that runs through the playground for play and custom-designed play equipment.
Large heated restroom buildings also house maintenance equipment and outdoor recreational equipment for local recreational leagues. The multipurpose field is surrounded by cherry and apple orchard trees where visitors are encouraged to explore the orchard area. The picnic lawn area is surrounded by stone walls, and a large group shelter is set atop the rock retaining walls.
The fenced dog park includes a shade shelter and the site has concrete and soft trails surrounding the perimeter with trail lighting. The asphalt paved parking lots includes lighting and is centrally located for easy access to fields, the restrooms and playground. Art designed specifically for the project is displayed in various areas of the spacious park for viewing.
