Santa Rita Park

Santa Rita Park is a heavily used park space within the City of Durango parks system.  From May through November 2021, site construction will be occurring to replace park amenities that were displaced by development of the Santa Rita Water Reclamation Facility (SRWRF) including a lighted basketball court, two lighted sand volleyball courts and a large picnic pavilion. Access to the Santa Rita Park playing field, playground and river will remain open during construction.

Multiple years of construction disturbance has displaced and affected public use of the park.  The implementation of park improvements at Santa Rita Park in 2021 will complete the transformation at Santa Rita comprising public park amenities and state-of-the-art water treatment infrastructure.
