BRIDGE RELOCATION CREATES OPPORTUNITY FOR GATHERING SPACE
6TH ST. PARKGLENWOOD SPRINGS, CO
RECLAIMING A PARK IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN
With the move of Glenwood's Grand Avenue Bridge to the west, there is new opportunity to position 6th Street as a pedestrian oriented destination. The landing area formerly occupied by the north end of the bridge frees up land which will be utilized for a park.
A PARK FOR FAMILIES
studioINSITE worked with a broad range of stakeholders to explore programmatic goals for the new park. A range of design alternatives were considered and narrowed to a preferred concept. Park elements include a performance stage, promenade for pop up vendors, an art walk, a children's play area, and a water feature. Adjacent buildings will re-orient towards the park on the west, and the park seamlessly connects to the Colorado River pedestrian bridge on the east.
