Town seeks input on Booth Creek Park

VAIL — The town of Vail is sponsoring a neighborhood meeting Thursday to collect suggestions for the renovation of Booth Creek Park. The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. at Vail Mountain School and kids, parents and other current and future park users are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided.

Located at 2900 Manns Ranch Road in East Vail, Booth Creek Park is the last of Vail’s six neighborhood parks in line for a major renovation.

The town has budgeted $2.4 million across the next four years to improve the quality, character and functionality of the three-acre park to make it consistent with the types of recreation facilities currently available at parks in other Vail neighborhoods.


The current facilities, most notably the tennis courts and the tot lot, are in substandard condition. The neighborhood planning meeting will provide an opportunity to review various amenities that could be included in the park’s design.

Elements such as a playground, new tennis courts, picnic tables and a shelter, a walking path, pickle ball courts, an open turf grass area and horseshoes are all possibilities. However, not all of the elements will fit due to the park’s size.

Following the meeting, additional neighborhood gatherings will be scheduled as needed in order to refine the park’s redevelopment. Comments and suggestions may also be made by contacting Todd Oppenheimer at 970-479-2161 or

Initial stages of construction could begin this fall.
