In 2018, Pierce County Council directed Parks to study the feasibility of installing a roof over the horse arena at Frontier Park. Parks hired an architectural consultant (BOA architects) to create a feasibility study to cover the entire horse arena (approximately 83,240 sq. ft.). The study considered material options and an estimated cost for the project
A year later, an updated study was done to consider covering a smaller section of the arena (24,000 sq. ft.). In 2022, the Washington State Legislature provided $1.8 million for the design and construction of this cover.
This project will select and contract a consultant team for design, permitting, and construction administration services in 2022 with the goal to begin construction in 2023.
