In August 2020, El Paso County Parks and its contractor, Performance Recreation, will begin work on the Phase II Park Improvements Project, following the guidelines of the 2017 Widefield Community Park Master Plan. Recommended improvements include the installation of two ADA-accessible picnic pavilions. Accessed by concrete sidewalks and equipped with picnic tables, trash cans, and BBQ grills, one pavilion will be located near the newly installed Fitness Zone, and the other immediately adjacent the recently updated and expanded playground, with ADA ramp access into the playground itself. Both picnic pavilions will be reservable by the public once completed. The project will also focus on the redesign and construction of the park’s main entrance sidewalk to bring it into ADA compliance, as well as the replacement of the playground’s aging poured-in-place safety rubberized surfacing.
Widefield Community Park users are asked to be aware of construction crews and equipment in the park, be respectful of construction fencing and warning signs, and avoid the construction areas.

Construction to Begin at Widefield Community Park
Work From October 6 to November 30.
El Paso County is initiating a construction project which will require intermittent closures of the playground, surrounding sidewalks, and a portion of the main parking lot within Widefield Community Park. This project includes replacing the sidewalk from the main parking lot to the restroom, construction of two new pavilions near the playground, and new playground components. Construction is scheduled in phases between October 6 and November 30, 2020.
