Basalt River Park - Town Owned Park

The Town has broken the Basalt River Park development into 2 phases.

  • Phase 2 will include the finishing of the park with final landscaping, play and shade structures, misting features, bathroom, bus stop, and band shell. The work on Phase 2 has begun and will be substantially compete by the fall of 2022.
