Open Space, Parks & Trails
New Confluence Park to be ready in 2013!
The 2.8 acre Confluence Park at Three Springs will be ready for your enjoyment in 2013! With a picnic area, open space, and new state of the art playground, this park will continue our Confluence Trail System and is located at the end of Mercado Street and alongside the new Cottonwood Inn.

Into the Great Wide Open!
Nearly half of the 681 acres of Three Springs is dedicated to open space, parks, trails and schools. That’s about 300 acres of playground for people of all ages. You can see on our master plan just how these open spaces were planned. Residents and visitors alike can take advantage of this great feature of our traditional neighborhood design. The maintenance of these open areas is designed to conserve water and hundreds of trees have been moved and replanted (not bought and planted) to create a mature landscape from the start.
In addition to the green belt parks that run east to west at the top of Village One as well as along the trails, there are 12 pocket parks that will include play equipment, community gardens and seating areas which encourage the interaction of Three Springs residents. And the 75-acre city community park is under development by the City of Durango Parks and Recreation Department. This will be the City of Durango’s largest developed park. The Master Plan for the park includes sports fields for softball and soccer, tennis courts, a destination playground, walking trails, picnic areas, dog play area, and passive areas, including a pond.
