Willow Creek 3 Coyote Awareness
This information may be old news for some long-time Willow Creek 3 residents and new to others.  In either case, it’s worth at least briefly repeating.

According to the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife, the coyote breeding season in our region will be taking place through March.  Pups are then born within 60 days.  coyote-signThat means coyotes may be especially protective of their mates, dens, pups and food sources now and through the upcoming months.  There have been recent coyote sightings on the Willow Creek Trail along the park as well as other areas throughout the Willow Creek community.

Although coyotes are rarely a threat to humans, that’s not the case for our pets. Parks and Wildlife recommends cats be kept indoors and dogs be kenneled or kept on a short leash while being walked.  Remember – a six-foot privacy fence is not a barrier for a coyote.

South Suburban to Build Recreation Complex Nearby
A new South Suburban Parks and Recreation indoor recreation complex is planned near the southwest corner of South Holly Street and East County Line Road, just a short distance from our Willow Creek Community. It will be located on what is now a South Suburban disc golf course. 

The 200,000 square foot complex will include a fieldhouse, two or three sheets of ice, a fieldhouse with two synthetic playing fields and two gymnasiums with volleyball, basketball and pickleball courts. The facility replaces the 50-year-old South Suburban Ice Arena and will house South Suburban’s administrative offices. 

Access will be from Boatworks Drive (behind Davidsons Liquors), and from County Line (a stoplight to be installed).  The adjacent dog park will remain.  Groundbreaking for the $50 million facility will begin in April or May.  It is expected to open in December of 2020.
 
Below are links to interior and exterior architectural drawings, maps and artist renditions of how the new facility is expected to look.
