The City of Littleton, in partnership with South Suburban Parks and Rec (SSPR) matched funds from a grant provided by Arapahoe County Open Space to install new improvements at Bowles Grove Park. The park is located across from Littleton Golf and Tennis Club, and visitors will see a new pond and improvements to the ballfield. Work began with selective thinning and removal of dead trees in the park. An aeration system and fountain were installed in the pond to increase oxygen and improve water quality, and crews restored the pond banks with native seeding to help establish native vegetation.
The existing ballfield was upgraded with a new backstop, covered dugouts, infield mix and warning track, port-o-let enclosure, storage shed, sideline fencing, fresh sod, foul poles and bleachers. A san-o-let enclosure was installed at the parking lot to serve the multipurpose fields. The asphalt trail from the parking lot to the ballfield was replaced with a new concrete loop trail around the ballfield.
