Pioneer Park Renovations
Based on comments generated from the stakeholders, business
community, and two public meetings held on February 19, 2014,
and May 8, 2014, the City of Mesa is implementing final
revisions to the project design master plan.
Construction documentation development will occur Spring 2015
through Summer 2015.
Construction is estimated to begin Fall 2015 with an estimated
completion of Spring 2016.
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.
Proposed improvements will be focused on the northern half of
the park and will include neighborhood park amenities such
as a playground, sports courts, and picnic ramadas. The southern half of the
park will remain open during construction and will focus on space for large
civic events as well as general park use.
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
