The new equipment will be designed to accommodate younger children that challenge their physical skills and abilities based on the latest play industry standards. The design should be complete by October 2012 and be ready for construction this fall/ winter. Depending on the weather, installation may be complete early spring 2013.

Garland Park Playground
Denver Parks and Recreation and their design consultants, Stream Design + Urban Play Studio presented a new playground concept for David T. Garland Park at the Cook Park Rec Center on Tuesday evening, February 12, 2013. Garland Park is in southeast Denver (S. Monaco and E. Cherry Creek North Dr.) and has two existing playgrounds that are scheduled for removal and relocated in the fall of 2013. After conducting a neighborhood survey and site analysis, the new playground concept combines the play activities into a larger, easier accessible playground near the beach volley ball courts and adjacent to the recently built restroom.

Overland Park Improvements
The Greenway Foundation and the City and County of Denver
Parks and Recreation Department will be making improvements at
Overland Pond Park in the Spring / Summer of 2013. The improvements
are being funded through a State of Colorado “Fishing is Fun” grant and
managed by both the Greenway Foundation and Denver Parks and Recreation.
The project generally includes three elements:
#1 – Overland Pond Dock Replacement
This work involves the removal of an existing wood dock structure and replacing with a new dock structure. The old dock pier/footings will be
removed and new pier/footings will be installed. The dock is located on the south side of Overland Pond.
#2 – Accessible “Boat” Launch
A proposed accessible boat launch is planned for the site. This boat launch is located at the northern edge of Overland Pond and will consist
of a gravel trail and a faux rock/concrete structure at the pond edge. (The boat launch will be used for stocking the pond and fishing events.
The launch will also provide another accessible area to fish from.)
#3 – Warm Water Fish Habitat Creation
Three areas of Overland Pond will be excavated to create deeper warm water fish habitats in Overland Pond.
A total of 250 cubic yards of material will be excavated and hauled off-site.
We anticipate constructing these improvements during the spring/summer of 2013.
