The Cone Park Lodge, a major component of the Sioux City’s All-Season Cone Park Master Plan, is nearing completion and may open for the 2017/2018 winter season. The Lodge will serve as the hub for the future Cone Park guests ice skating or tubing on the adjacent slopes, offering a warm spot to relax, warm up, and recharge. The Lodge will also be used as an all-season community hub for events or private functions, such as weddings.
BHA was brought onto the Cone Park Master Plan as the Recreation and Park Planner to provide an assessment of the physical realities of the site, and develop an integrated, well-balanced site plan. This great project was a collaboration between BHA and the professionals from SEH, V&K, Torrent Eng. and RRC.
The preferred concept linked a lite ice skating rink and tube park, snowboarding and skiing facilities, multi-use trails, and splash pad for summer, with an accessible base and parking area. The completion of the Cone Park Lodge represents the next step towards the realization of the Master Plan for Cone Park.
The Lodge’s progress is showcased in the Sioux City Journal.
