Bull Creek District Parks is one of the city’s most popular and visited parks. Known for its unique limestone outcropping and popular swimming opportunities, Bull Creek District Park is the anchor for Bull Creek Greenbelt. Many hikers enjoy the space year round, but the high-use experienced in the summer months call for improved park amenities to ensure the space is enjoyed for generations to come.

Project Description

In continuation of recently completed park improvements, the restrooms at Bull Creek District Park will be renovated.  Improvements focus on facility repair and ADA access.
