Completion of Platte Farm Open Space

In 2020, after nearly 14 years of work, the Platte Farm Open Space project was completed! The community drove the restoration project from start to finish, and can finally tangibly feel the result of their tireless work. Platte Farm Open Space now boasts a walking trail, native landscaping, improved pedestrian access, and demonstration of stormwater management utilizing green infrastructure and sustainable landscaping. It is a park that addresses multiple urban issues in a neighborhood that is surrounded by industry. Globeville residents of all ages enjoy the space as a way to reconnect with nature and combat nature deficit disorder. The park offers options for active living and removes barriers to physical activity. Additionally, it creates a sustainable future by remedying high-cost maintenance, unnecessary resource usage, and seasonal flooding.
