This week, City Manager Kathy Hodgson signed closing documents purchasing approximately 60 acres of the Taylor property to be preserved as park and open space. Today’s closing is the culmination of years of work to ensure this property, with stunning vistas of the Front Range, will be enjoyed by Lakewood residents for generations to come. The next steps include a site planning effort to determine how the park can be accessed and enjoyed by residents, with the park expected to open in 2020. To ensure that the city had the opportunity to purchase this property, Lakewood drew on funds normally used for constructing improvements in the city, but Lakewood is seeking grants to reimburse those funds.
