First park now officially open in Downtown Westminster

First park now officially open in Downtown Westminster

Sporting a pavilion, stage and water features, the first park is now open in Downtown Westminster. The 1.2 acre park sits north of JCPenney and can be used as an outdoor meeting space and is a central feature in the growing downtown space. A recent celebration officially opened the park to the public for public use.

"What we have here is an event spot that will be used in the long term and I'm proud of the city for making Downtown Westminster a draw for our residents," said Mayor Herb Atchison.

Both the pavilion and the stage are made out of ipe wood, a durable wood designed to withstand the Colorado elements. The park's pavilion features restrooms, picnic tables, and sliding doors to make the space feel more open.  The pavilion is in the process of being approved for silver LEED certification.

"This site is an amazing step forward for Downtown Westminster and is a wonderful addition to the city's parks system," said Parks, Recreation and Libraries Director Jason Genck. "We're excited for our resident to enjoy the space."

The park was used as the pumpkin patch during the city's Halloween Harvest Festival on Saturday, Oct. 20, with many kids playing in the water features as families picked pumpkins.
