Pioneer Park Renovations
A public meeting is tentatively scheduled for January 2014.
Park planning is from August 2013 to February 2014. The
scope of work for the first phase of development will be
determined based on stakeholder and public feedback.
Pioneer Park is a 17.8-acre park located in downtown Mesa on
Main Street. At around 60 years old, it is one of Mesa's
earliest parks and it is due for an update. Pioneer Park
is the historic urban recreational amenity of downtown Mesa.
The renovation of the park will consider the prominent Main
Street location within the historic core, the proximitiy of the
incoming light rail route, and adjacency to the Mormon Temple.
The new Pioneer Park will provide a venue for both civic and
neighborhood interaction for future generations.
The southern half of the park will focus on space for large
civic events as well as general park use. The northern
half of the park will focus on neighborhood park amenities such
as a playground, sports courts, and picnic ramadas.
With many groups expressing an interest in how the park will be
renovated, the City is starting the pro
opportunities for input from key stakeholders. The 2012
Parks Bond package has funding available to develop a master
plan for park redevelopment as well as implenmentation of the
first phase of renovations. The scope of work for that
first phase of development will be determined based on
stakeholder and public feedback.
This project is funded through the voter-approved 2012 Parks
