Central Park Master Plan

Since acquiring the land in 2005, the Town of Firestone has anticipated the development of Central Park. While at various times some conceptual plans have been developed, the project has never had a true design effort that could lead to construction.   After the Park, Open Space, and Trails Master Plan effort, the Board of Trustees identified Central Park as the #1 priority.  As such the Town is moving forward with an actual design effort aimed at beginning construction in 2022. The Board of Trustees emphasized the importance of having the public involved in this process.

Updates and important dates will be posted on this page, and shared with the public through various outlets.
