Parks Advisory Board

The role of the Parks Advisory Board includes four primary responsibilities:

  • Advise the Public Works Parks Division Staff on compliance with Tree City USA Standards.

  • Advise the Board of Trustees regarding the establishment and implementation of a Public Art Policy that guides the acceptance and placement of public art memorials, donations and purchases.

  • Advise the Public Works Parks Division Staff and the Board of Trustees on content and implementation of technical standards for public and private parks, trails, plantings, noxious weeds and pest control. 

  • Support the Community environmental/wetlands educational programs in the schools and community efforts on river restoration, clean up, bank revegetation and water quality protection.

This board meets on the third Thursday of the month at 8:30 a.m. at Town Hall, Room 202, Estes Park. The public is encouraged to attend. Public comment is heard at regular meetings. 

Art in Public Places 

The Parks Advisory Board has created the Art in Public Places (AIPP) program which describes the process and criteria to be used when evaluating potential public works of art and projects for Town display. This program will enrich the community by weaving public art into everyday experiences and creating lasting impressions on those who encounter it. Take a moment to acquaint yourself with this exciting new program by reading the following brochure:
