|History||The City of Arvada acquired the land from John F. Fuller & Co. and leased it to North Jeffco Recreation and Park District for 99 years in 1967, and deeded it to North Jeffco, April 12, 1968. This action was signed by Mayor Richard Bartlett. The park was developed in 1975 as a result of the 1974 City of Arvada Bond Election. Additional land was provided by the developer and a shelter house was constructed. The park was named because it was close to an early street, Davis Lane, the street on which pioneer Harpin Davis lived. The current name of Davis Lane is now Oak Street.|
