Ketring-Gallup Park Master Plan

Ketring Park, Gallup Gardens, and Gallup Park (hereinafter referred to as “Ketring-Gallup Park”) comprise approximately 55.5 acres collectively around Bemis Public Library and the Littleton Museum, about a mile southeast of Historic Downtown Littleton. These parks feature passive and active spaces, Ketring Lake (also known as Gallup Reservoir), a mature tree canopy, rich vistas, public artworks, pedestrian trails, and multiple parking areas. 

The City of Littleton, in partnership with South Suburban Parks and Recreation, identified the need for this overarching master plan of all three parks, which will serve as a guiding document in realizing a more comprehensive vision that celebrates and fosters the cultural amenities of the site. Based on the input we receive from you, the master plan will provide long-term goals and actionable strategies with detailed, prioritized improvement projects.

Please help us bring forth a cohesive vision that will help guide the future development of Ketring-Gallup Park.

Concept Alternatives

In the third round of community engagement, which closed mid-January, community members were able to view the concept alternates for the design of Ketring-Gallup Park and share valuable feedback to inform the finalized design of the park. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our open houses and filled out the online survey! 

The design team is currently in the process of distilling the information gathered from the community and summarizing this feedback for the completion of the park Master Plan. Please continue to check the project page for updates in the coming months.
