Mountain Ridge Park is a 17 acre parcel of property located west of Mountain Ridge Junior High. For some time, City Council has been looking into the possibility of selling a portion of some of the Spring Creek Park land (located at 10029 North 6300 West) and using the proceeds of the sale to begin to develop Mountain Ridge Park. A number of plans for the park have previously existed. On October 16, 2018, City Council voted to take 60% of the proceeds from the Spring Creek Park sale and put it towards Mountain Ridge Park.
In April 2019, City Council voted to revise the Master Plan based off of the 2019 Resident Survey and feedback garnered from previous Open Houses. The amended plan will be presented at an Open House on Wednesday, November 13 from 6:30-8:30PM to see the updated plan and to give feedback. The new design (PDF) has an all abilities playground, walking paths, restrooms and pavilions, 3 multi-use grass fields, and 8 pickleball courts.
The Highland City Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization that is currently raising funds to help build the all abilities playground. For more information or to donate, see their flyer (PDF).
