Pioneer Park Renovations                               



Project Updates


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.




Project Schedule

Construction documentation development will occur Spring 2015 through Summer 2015.  Construction is estimated to begin Fall 2015 with an estimated completion of Spring 2016. 

Project Details

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 of renovations. 

Project Funding

This project is funded through the voter-approved 2012 Parks Bond Program.
