Document Description
The proposed Bille Park Improvement project will include the construction of new park facilities within the boundaries of the existing Bille Park. The project would occur within the developed areas of the park, in an area currently used routinely for leaf and branch piles. New bicycle tracks and track features will be added as part of the proposed project including a flow track with beginner, intermediate, and advanced tracks, a track return loop and turn around, a bicycle track start platform, track spectator seating, a black diamond flow track, a skills course, and a bicycle pump track. A new adventure play area will be included in the proposed project. The adventure play area will include an adventure play structure, bucket swing, and rope spinner as well as an area with fall material. A dynamic rope course area will be included in the proposed project as well. The rope course area will include an area with fall material, a rope course squirrel, a flying V, a log pole, and a log wall. The proposed project will include new water resource features including a stormwater capture area in the northern parking lot and a dry riverbed for drainage connecting to a drain inlet located at the northwest side of the park. A new 6’ gravel trail with a spiral boulder hill is included in the proposed project and connects to existing trails on the southwestern, eastern, and northern areas of the park. The proposed project will also include infrastructure such as a vegetation screen and fence with vine, an entry gateway on the north side of the park, additional path access from the northwest side of the park, a basalt cliff 4’ elevation change, new turf, and interpretive panels focused on geologic, fire ecology, forest ecology, cultural, and groundwater information.
