about the project
The park provides a mix of spaces that vary in size to create a more human scale environment that is welcoming, safe and attractive for a variety of uses and programs. The newly configured open space restores the flood-prone “washes” of Boulder Creek and includes native planting and dynamic topography to diversify habitat and improve safety within the 100-year floodplain. The new park provides for a rich set of experiences in connection with the creek where children can safely play and take in the wonderful views of the flatirons along the shaded paths. Extensive outreach and design with the community and school children led to improvements such as the Tree House, water play features and a new signature bridge.
