HistoryThe property for Moon Gulch Park was provided by the City's 6% park requirement from Melody Homes Development and by the City's portion of Jefferson County Open Space Funds. This five-acre park includes a softball field, back- stop and tennis courts. Part of the area is recessed for flood retention and gives the impression of being moon-shaped from overflow of heavy rains, giving it the name Moon Gulch Park. Walkway doubles for bike path along W. 72nd Avenue.
