About the Project

The Gunston Bubble is being renovated so that it is more energy efficient and reliable! This Parks Maintenance Capital project will include the design and construction of a framed athletic facility (bubble), site circulation, electric  & lighting, heating, drainage and stormwater management. No new amenities are planned for this project, which is funded by the Capital Improvement Plan.

Update: Unsuitable soil conditions were discovered in early January of 2022. Due to these conditions, the projected construction end date has been extended to 3rd quarter 2022.

About the Process

On Dec. 17, community members were invited to share thoughts on Gunston Park's enclosed athletic facility improvements at the Gunston Community Center. View presentation boards here. An online feedback opportunity was open through Jan. 1 and received no community comments.
