Opportunity Way Park is an expanded park which is partially built over an EPCOR active recharge facility. It’s the first park of its kind in the country! The park has two multi-use soccer fields and other amenities on approximately 9.6 acres of land. The southern 2.5 acres are comprised of the existing park, retention pond and well site, with the remaining 7.1 acres available for the park expansion. The program for Opportunity Way Park includes additional multi-use sports fields, playground equipment, ramadas, leisure game space, off-street parking, and a restroom building.
