Help Keep Our Fields Looking Great!
Please assist us in keeping the synthetic fields in great condition by observing the posted signs to learn what items are not allowed.


Access the park through the Paul Derda Recreation Center parking lot, (13201 Lowell Boulevard, off of Lowell Boulevard between Midway Avenue and 136th Avenue) or off of Sheridan Boulevard between Midway Avenue and 136th Avenues.


The park features 15 playing fields, including soccer, two playgrounds, a pavilion, and five picnic huts. The site's artificial turf Championship Field is truly a field of dreams for many in the recreational sports community.

New Parking Lot construction is ready to begin!

Broomfield City Council approved the parking lot construction and the contractor is ready to get started. 

Construction of the parking lot will require the temporary closure of the small dog park beginning the week of May 23rd. Only the large dog park will remain open during this construction phase and will be open to all dogs. Temporary construction fencing will be installed and a new temporary entrance will be constructed north of the current entrance. During construction of the new entrance; the entire dog park will be closed. 

There will be times during the parking lot construction that the dog park will be closed for the safety of users and workers. Closures will be posted at the entrance of the dog park with as much advance notice as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout the construction process. We are excited to continue the improvements in Commons Park and enhance the recreational opportunities for residents.
