Project Schedule

Project Details

Greenfield Park is an existing 19-acre park owned by the City of Mesa. The park is located adjacent to Mesa Fire Station 205 at the corner of Greenfield Road and East Diamond Avenue. The current park offers a small hidden irrigation lake that is not designed to serve the entire park, exercise stations, a small tot lot that is in need of renovations, minimal parking and substantial turf open space.

The proposed enhancements to this park focus on redesigning the lake into a 5-acre urban fishing lake. This will create a great amenity for the park and utilize the expanded water volume to irrigate the entire park landscape and turf area. The lake will include 4 urban fishing stations for residents to enjoy fishing in the park. A tree-lined lake promenade is designed to the north of the lake with benches and places to sit that overlook the lake. A new passenger drop off as well as additional parking along east Diamond Avenue will help accommodate additional residents enjoying the park.

A themed walkway / bridge connection over the lake will span the eastern portion of the lake and will connect the tree lined promenade to the active portion of the park. This area will include a children's tot lot, ramadas, and a new restroom building. A new parking lot is proposed with access off of East Pueblo Avenue for additional park guests. A new fire truck display area will also be available for the fire station to facilitate kids interacting with fire personnel and the fire equipment for school field trips and fire safety education events.
