Construction on Waukee’s newest park began in the spring of 2016. Fox Creek Park is located on 18 acres of land, adjacent to the new Grant Ragan Elementary School. Phase 1 projects that have been completed include earthwork and grading, and paving of ¾ mile of trails. The trails allow for great student walkability for those in area neighborhoods.
Crews recently installed site amenities including a drinking fountain and associated utilities, entry signs, seeding and landscaping elements. Genus Landscape Architects designed the master plan of the park, and Joiner Construction, Inc. is the contractor on the project. The cost of Phase 1 came in at $703,792.10.
Work on the park will continue in the coming years. The master plan includes tennis and Pickle-ball courts, basketball courts, parking areas, a shelter, a splash pad, open greenspaces, play pods, an outdoor classroom and a Little Free Library™.
