The St. Vrain flood in 2013 was deemed as the state's costliest natural disaster. Using debris from the flood, the design consisted of using salvaged logs, timbers and cobble deposits to create an outdoor, multi-age nature play area. For the park, we created log climbers, hillside climbs, gateways, benches, totem poles, a bike rack, sensory path, a sand point well and a cobble stream bed. The focal point of the park is a large fallen tree repurposed for play that memorializes the parks transformation.
