Berthoud Recreation Center and Parks Master Plans
Berthoud residents were asked to help the Town Board decide what future park and recreational amenities should be developed. As a first step, Town Staff, Town Council, and the PORT Committee began the process to enhance five parks and explore the possibility of building a recreation center.
The master plan process created conceptual plans for Berthoud Town Park, Waggener Farm Park, Richardson Park, and Knievel Park. Plans for the parks examined the different recreational amenities located at each, including incorporating a recreation center on one site that houses future aquatics facilities, community event spaces, and facilities for youth sports activities. In addition, this new master plan will fit within the recently completed Unified Trails Master Plan and provide connectivity between Berthoud’s Parks and the trail system.

Community Feedback Survey
To get the most feedback possible, residents were encouraged to provide their feedback to an online survey. This survey asked questions about the Recreation Center and Parks Master Plan and is an additional engagement opportunity that compliments the public open houses.
Community Open Houses
A big part of the process is to ensure those living in Berthoud have a chance to weigh in on the plans. During mid-July, Berthoud residents were asked to attend two public meetings to give their feedback on the initial park plans. The first was the PORT Meeting on Monday, July 9, 2018. The Recreation Center and Parks Master Plans were a big topic of discussion. Read the full meeting minutes.
The second public meeting was an open house on Thursday, July 12, 2018. During the open house, up to 75 residents attended to share their feedback about the proposed sites.
