Construction is underway for Alamar Park, a new 40-acre community park east of El Mirage Road, north of Broadway Road, in Avondale. A ceremonial ground breaking took place today, February 3, 2021, at the site of the new park. The event included Avondale Council members and representatives of Brookfield Residential, which is partnering with the City on this project.
When completed in Spring of 2022, Alamar Park will include baseball/softball and multi-use fields, tennis and pickleball courts, playgrounds, lake, splash pad, amphitheater, dog park and picnic ramadas for everyone to enjoy.
“Residents of Avondale remind us that quality of life is a top priority for them, and that means places to recreate, gather, and be active,” said Avondale Mayor Kenn Weise. “The city is proud to add this amenity to our recreational spaces in Avondale, situated in the newest community of Alamar.”
Roger Theis, Director of Development, Brookfield Residential Arizona stated, “Brookfield Residential is excited for the ground-breaking and start of construction on Alamar Park. We are seeing the vision of over one-and-a-half years of collaboration with the City of Avondale begin to transform into the built environment. Alamar Park and its 40 acres of amenities will be a central hub of connection for the residents of Alamar as well as the south Avondale community.”
Brookfield is contributing $6.9M towards the design and construction of the park, with an additional $2.7M for the donation of 40 acres of land and the adjacent half-street infrastructure for a total contribution of $9.6M; coupled with the City of Avondale’s $8.1M construction contribution provides investment in a $17.7M project.
