Project Summary & Public Benefits

In 2003, the District approved a Master Plan for The Bluffs Park, and in 2004, implemented Phase I of the plan, which consisted of installing play equipment and building a gravel trail, providing access from Haskell Court.

Using funds from the 2008 bond measure, THPRD is now implementing Phase II of the Master Plan. Phase II includes connecting South Drive to the play equipment with an asphalt trail, replacing a temporary trail built in 2009, and adding landscaping, signage and storm water filtering.

Update

The Bluffs Park opened to the public in January 2013

The Bluffs Park is now open! THPRD is excited to complete this vital neighborhood link. The new paved pathways, that connect South Drive to the play equipment, are surrounded by beautiful views and landscaping.

To view the approved master plan for Phase II, please check the "Document Center" on the right side of this page. As always, if you have any questions/comments, we would like to hear from you.  Please contact us using THPRD's web contact form.

Previous Update

Based on concerns expressed by park neighbors it was concluded that the following design changes would be made:

• Narrow the asphalt path width from 6 feet to 5 feet, but retain the gravel base of 8 feet.
• Remove the proposed plaza and benches from the south end of the trail at South Drive to address concerns expressed by the adjacent property owners about loss of privacy.
• Use the savings from the removal of the plaza and narrowing of the paved trail to provide additional landscape plantings to screen adjacent property owners from the trail.

***Please note: All plans are subject to change***
