A new park will be built on the grounds of the Coon Rapids Ice Center (11000 Crooked Lake Boulevard) in 2017. The park, known as Boulevard Park for now, will feature a splash pad, park equipment for all ages, landscaping and trails. The park will be the only one of its kind in the city; no other parks currently have a splash pad. The City received a 50% discount on the playground equipment by ordering in 2016. Park construction will begin after the 2017 Fourth of July celebration which is also held on the grounds of the Coon Rapids Ice Center. The project is possible thanks to money from the Park Bond approved by voters in 2013. The park will be completed in 2017 but the splash pad won't be operational until summer 2018.
