Park Information – The Wheatlands Metro District is pleased to announce we are beginning Phase 2 of the Wheatlands Park Project. The design is shown below and will include: a full size basketball court, multi use sport court (for pickleball or half basketball), yard games, ping pong tables, new perennial beds, picnic tables and hammock area. We have submitted the design to the City of Aurora for approval and construction will begin next year. We look forward to completing the park and having additional outdoor space for our community to enjoy.
District Landscaping Information –  The Wheatlands Board met with our landscape architect Architerra to discuss adding additional plant color palettes to our neighborhood. This would include plants that come back year over year and provide color throughout different growing seasons. The board chose the blue, purple, yellow planting scheme shown below that pairs well with our existing material in the neighborhood. Our first focus will be around the monuments in our neighborhood and then we hope to expand the plan throughout the Wheatlands Metro property adding pops of color throughout the neighborhood.
