Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre

Queen Creek, Arizona

J2 worked closely with the Town, Town Committees, and its User Groups to develop an overall master plan with the future equestrian park in mind. J2 developed a park master plan and phasing plan to accommodate the Town’s desire to have an equestrian friendly park. The initial stage of the project includes developing the 38 acres as an equestrian event center, with two lighted arenas (one covered), two lighted warm-up rings, a 100-stall barn with attached restrooms and showers, holding pens and chutes, a wash rack, spectator and contestant parking, vendor hook-up areas, offices, maintenance facilities, a restroom/concession building, a multi-use space, and an overflow parking lot. The Community arena area includes a lighted arena, a round pen, and a restroom. A future phase will include an administrative office, a full kitchen, an additional concession area two additional 100-stall barns, a warm-up ring, a wash rack, holding pens and chutes. Future phases will also include playground equipment, trails, picnic areas, trail nodes with picnic tables and a mountaintop sitting area on a landfill reclamation site.

Services provided for this project included master planning the entire 126 acre parcel which includes 88 acres of landfill, and 38 acres for the equestrian park.. The resulting master plan information accommodated the Town’s desire to have an equestrian based facility which promoted the rural lifestyle of the southeast valley. Through the master plan development, J2 developed the design themes, administered public involvement, and created the park’s final master plan and master plan report document.
