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.
