Welcome to the Kensington Park Master Plan and Renewal project website. Here you will find information about the current efforts to implement the Kensington Park Master Plan improvements and renew the park.
The Kensington Park Master Plan was completed in 2005 and was spearheaded by the "Kensington Can! Revitalization Plan" dated July, 2004. Phases 1 and 2 of the master-planned improvements have been completed which included bridge replacement, a new restroom, accessible parking, a kiosk, basketball court, labyrinth and community gathering space adjacent to Longs Peak Avenue. Additional phases of the Master Plan are being implemented as funding allows with the recent replacement of the south playground in 2014 and the north playground replacement in 2015.

North Playground Replacement Project

Construction is complete and the new playground north of Longs Peak Avenue is open for use! Improvements include new play equipment, a platform/disc swing, sand play area with fossil find features below the sand, seating boulders, ADA compliant playground safety surfacing, benches, bike racks, and trash and recycling containers.

Funding

Your Park & Greenway Maintenance Fee at Work! This project is funded by the City’s Park and Greenway Maintenance Fee Fund and the Public Improvement Fund. Additional funding for the South Playground Replacement Project was acquired through a private donation from the Guadalupe Charitable Trust, a Neighborhood Improvement Grant, and a bike rack donation from LiveWell Longmont. A Neighborhood Improvement Grant also contributed to the improvements north of Longs Peak Avenue, providing funding for bench replacements around the pond, additional benches at the playground, bike racks and the trash and recycling containers. Additional trees to shade the benches are also being funded by the grant.
