HistoryTwo acres of Callahan and Melmon Subdivision were deeded for park purposes, November 22, 1967. For a period of time the park was managed by various civic clubs and organizations. Finally a request was made by Arvada Jaycees that the District develop in cooperation with Boy Scout Troop 231 Melmon Park. With North Jeffco specifications Scouts and Jaycees provided manpower and as much material as possible. They built bridges, installed picnic tables, planted grass and trees, and spruced-up the greenbelt along Ralston Creek.
