Our approach is rooted in the metaphorical/physica
Re-connecting the entirety of the land into one unified park.
The organizing element of the park is a 1300’ promenade (5-minute walk) from 13th to the library. This civic gesture links a series of spaces on both sides of an enhanced wetland. This wetland area will be utilized as part of a retention, detention, and cistern based flood control program. This program is intended to allow the creek to swell during a flash flood and to prevent physical harm to person and property. The civic uses will be relocated to remove several of the city functions from the flood plain while addressing and including the relocated/new space requirements proposed by the citizens of Boulder through the public visioning process.
