Pioneer Park Renovations                               



Project Updates


A public meeting was conducted on February 19, 2014, to gather public feedback on the park planning process.  A second public meeting will be held in late Spring 2014 to review the progress of the proposed concept plan. 




Project Schedule

Planning for the park is scheduled from August 2013 through May 2014.  The scope of work for the first phase of development will be determined based on stakeholder and public feedback. 

Project Details

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 Pioneer Park renovation project will consider the park's prominent Main Street location within the historic core and the close proximity of the incoming light rail route.  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 process with 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 implementation of the first phase of renovations. 

Project Funding

This project is funded through the voter-approved 2012 Parks Bond Program.
