Buckle up, because this has been a wild ride!
Annexation in the City of Durango: A Unifying Milestone
This year marked a significant chapter in our Park’s history as we proudly announced our annexation into the City of Durango. This union not only strengthens our ties with the community but also opens up new avenues for collaboration and support. Together, we look forward to shaping a vibrant future for Durango Mesa Park. Please note that for now the property remains private and in future years, additional segments will be conveyed to the City.
Expanding Horizons: 7 Miles of New Trails
The opening of nearly 7 miles of new trails in September was a highlight of 2023. These trails, carefully designed and built to cater to riders of all skill levels, embody our commitment to providing a diverse and progressive experience for everyone. Whether you’re a seasoned rider, a never-ever beginner, or a rider with special mobility needs, there’s a trail at Durango Mesa Bike Park for you to explore. Read More
Meadow Hub Installation: A Nexus of Connectivity
The Meadow Hub is here! The Meadow Hub at Durango Mesa Bike Park buzzed to life in 2023, on its way to becoming the heartbeat of the Park. A testament to our dedication to creating a cohesive and connected experience at Durango Mesa Park, The Meadow Hub connects the new trails, connects Horse Gulch to Durango Mesa Park and will ultimately connect future elements of the bike park. It serves as a gathering point for adventure seekers, families, and friends alike, bringing people together in the heart of Durango Mesa Park while fostering a sense of unity and accessibility.
La Plata County Fairgrounds Relocation: A Pivotal Decision
In a noteworthy turn of events, La Plata County opted out of the Katz family’s land offer to relocate the La Plata County Fairgrounds to Durango Mesa Park. While plans for that space continue to evolve, our commitment to preserving the natural beauty of the park and creating a space for community gathering remains unwavering. We will continue to collaborate with local stakeholders to ensure that Durango Mesa Park thrives as a hub of recreation and cultural celebration. Read More
Looking Ahead: A Vision for 2024 and Beyond
As we ride into the new year, we are filled with anticipation for what lies ahead. Our commitment to inclusivity, fun, heritage preservation, and community building will guide us as we embark on exciting projects. From developing infrastructure to expanding trail networks to introducing innovative features and amenities, collaboration remains our cornerstone. We’ll continue working with the City of Durango, community groups, and passionate individuals to shape the Park’s future together.
