Cedar Niles Park
Opening in January 2022, Cedar Niles Park is JCPRD's newest park.
Cedar Niles Park is located west of K-7, stretching from approximately 119th Street just past 135th Street. The property totals 1,030 acres and contains many natural assets including streams, dramatic topography, and diverse plant life. Cedar Niles Park offers 4 miles of multi-use paved trails as well as 4.5 miles of single-track trails for mountain biking and hiking. The 4.5-mile stretch of the unpaved medium-difficulty trail is called the Columbine Loop after the native wildflower which can be found abundantly on the northern portion of the trail. Amenities at the 135th Street Access include a shelter and playground, and each of the access points offers bike fix-it stations.
The master plan for Cedar Niles was first developed in 2008. The predominate public opinion was that the park should include mostly passive uses, with a strong interest in a variety of trails. The Cedar Niles Park design concept was presented at the Feb. 20, 2019 Regular Board Meeting. The board moved to proceed with design and construction documents.
