Pioneer Park Renovations
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.
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.
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 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 implementation of the first phase
This project is funded through the voter-approved 2012 Parks
