Report a Problem - A2 Fix It

To report any maintenance issues or other problem during your park visit, please report through A2Fix It​. Keep in mind that parks are large spaces and A2 Fix It requests can be difficult to find without detailed information. When reporting an issue in a park please include location details. There is a details and description section near the end of the request process to help you provide this. In addition, users can utilize the pin (website) or X (mobile app) feature to provide specific location information inside the park. Finally, please consider including a wide angle photo or include background landmarks, which helps staff find and fix the problem.

Information on donating to the parks and the Guide to Giving can be found here​. Alternatively if you have a special project or park improvement idea that you want to donate your time and energy toward, a great place to start is through Adopt-a-Park and the proposing a special park project​ guide. For information on donating a tree through Adopt-a-Park, the tree donation guide​​​ can help you get started. ​

History

The first plot of the land that became Windemere Park was acquired by the city in 1972. In 1979 construction of the neighborhood subdivision, known as Earhart Knolls, was approved. Part of this agreement was that the developer would dedicate some land as park land which would be added to the existing Windemere park. This addition formed the park boundary as it is today. The Glacier Highland Homeowners Association helped develop the master plan for the park and donated some improvements to the park. The park was officially dedicated in 1982.

Recent Developments: In 2014 a plan was approved after soliciting public input to move the existing tennis courts to their current location, after the original courts (built in 1986) had been showing signs of age and decay.
