The district has been acquiring land for Buchanan Park for about 10 years as part of a long-range master plan that includes a combination arts/community center and outdoor amphitheater.
The privately owned acreage is in the center of Buchanan Park near Windom Drive on Evergreen Parkway.
Landowner Tammy Bullock of Evergreen told the Canyon Courier the district agreed to buy the land for $750,000 and $250,000 in a grant from Great Outdoors Colorado.
