Pioneer Park Renovations
Based on comments generated from the stakeholders, business
community, and a public meeting on February 19, 2014, the City
of Mesa has refined and revised the planned renovations. A
Public Meeting will be held Thursday, May 8, 2014, to review
Construction is estimated to begin Spring 2015 with an estimated
completion of Fall 2015.
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
