East Community Park Open Space

CHEYENNE – An open house for the East Cheyenne Community Park will take place Thursday, January 20th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Saddle Ridge Elementary School Gymnasium (6815 Wilderness Trail).

The open house is intended to get neighborhood input for the East Cheyenne Community Park Master Plan project. At the meeting, you can learn more about the project, timeline, process moving forward, and provide your thoughts and ideas. An online survey is available until January 15th to provide input on the park’s future at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GFH3KXQ.

The park was purchased in early 2020 with voter approved Sixth Penny tax funding. The site is 105 acres located at the southwest corner of East Pershing Boulevard and Whitney Road. It is now open to the public as a low maintenance, natural, open space. The southern portion of the site contains a large pond with a significant population of birds and other wildlife. 

A ribbon cutting ceremony for the park was held on July 1st, 2021 to formally open the space to the public.
