On Feb. 27, 2019, DPR submitted a letter to the BOS to request funds to purchase a 98-acre parcel of land, soon to be known as Alpine County Park, with intent to build an active recreation area on site. The request was approved, leading to the purchase of the property on March 4, 2019.
Of the 98 acres, 26 will be developed for active recreation, with features to suit Alpine residents of all ages, abilities and interests – and offering a safe place to play for those who do not have access to open space from their homes. The remaining 72 acres of the land, which serve as a natural barrier between the park and Wright’s Field, will remain open space preserve. By purchasing the land for a park, it is protected as such, in perpetuity. Its size, breadth of amenities, and open space trail system are designed to meet both the current and future needs of the Alpine community.
The property will be open 7 days a week, from sunrise to sunset and patrolled by rangers, volunteers and in partnership with local fire crews and law enforcement.
