Globeville Landing Park
Playgrounds, a custom climbing wall, water play, and a chance to connect with nature in the city—Globeville Landing Park was the final journey of the Platte to Park Hill project. Adding almost two acres of parkland, the site created a native vegetated trickle channel to convey stormwater, and will reduce irrigation consumption by converting the mostly-bluegrass park to large areas of native grasses. The project features a new destination playground with water and sand play, custom nature play area, and two age- separated playground features. There are also two shade pavilions for picnic gatherings.
Globeville Landing Park was redesigned to incorporate an outfall where stormwater naturally enters the South Platte River. The outfall improvement helps to reduce flood risks in the area and adds an open, natural channel connecting to the river that provides new recreational space, water quality benefits, and opportunities to restore natural ecosystems that attract wildlife.
