City wins state award for Westminster Station Park project

City wins state award for Westminster Station Park project

The massive engineering work involved to create the foundation for the new Westminster Station Park (located at the Westminster Station) recently won the 2017 Excellence in Engineering Award from the Colorado Association of Flood Plain Managers. 

Twelve years in the making, the 38-acre Little Dry Creek Drainage and Flood Control Project utilized talent from all city departments and laid the groundwork for Westminster Station Park.  The project realigned Little Dry Creek, created a 2.3-acre pond and lowered the flood plain by 5 feet in order to keep the commuter rail tracks above water during significant storms. 

This project was a partnership with the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District and Adams County. 

The project created an inviting and quiet space that compliments the emerging transit oriented development area around Westminster Station.

Treat yourself to a visit, walk the 1 mile loop trail and keep an eye out for egrets, cranes and turtles. 

Get more information about the park and the upcoming nature playground.
