It may have been a little chilly, but it was a great day to break ground.
Last Friday, our Commercial team along with DHM Design and Commerce City officials, broke ground at Veterans Memorial Park; symbolizing the start of the renovation for the park to become the first all-inclusive park along the Front Range.
Since 1971, the park has been an important gathering space for the residents in Commerce City. The newly renovated, all-inclusive park will provide the opportunity for children with all abilities to play together.
The sensory-rich park will feature:
- An all-inclusive playground and nature playground (Natureplay)
- Labyrinth for reflection and exercise
- ADA-accessible features such as sidewalk ramps and picnic tables
- Sheltered picnic areas with electricity
- Raised landscape beds for educational youth programs
- Native landscaping and entryway plaza
