Project Update 10/28/13

Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday, October 26, 2013 to cut the ribbon and celebrate the new and improved Wulf Park! Blue Spruce Kiwanis served up a BBQ in the new shelter dedicated to late EHS trades teacher Gene Younger. See pics (by StudioCota) and learn all about it on Facebook!

EPRD Executive Director Scott Robson conducted a walking tour of the 6.36-acre park, located at Wulf Recreation Center at 5300 South Olive Road in Evergreen, which used to be so steep and difficult to access that many people didn't even realize it was there.

Thanks to two Jefferson County Open Space Division grants totaling $228,000, plus $317,000 in EPRD capital improvement funds, Wulf Park has undergone a huge transformation this summer. The contractors selected were the Lafayette-based landscape architecture firm Design Concepts and the Evergreen-based Himmelman Construction.

In addition, Blue Spruce Kiwanis donated $23,000 for construction of a picnic shelter, which will be dedicated to Gene Younger, EHS High Traders Teacher during the ribbon cutting celebration. Kiwanis members will then serve up a picnic lunch.

The Evergreen Recreation and Park Foundation donated $6,000 to purchase some new playground equipment.

The new and improved Wulf Park now boasts:
   •   A safer, more inviting entrance plaza, which will eventually feature art pieces in cooperation with
       Art for the Mountain Community
   •   Grading to make the park less steep and easier to navigate
   •   Gently sloped walkways with attractive wooden bridges to improve access for people with
       disabilities and parents pushing strollers
   •   An attractive dry creek bed (for improved drainage) in which children can play
   •   New playground equipment, including wood chips and a rubberized surface, with sculptures and
       a spacious seating area for caregivers
   •   New skate park features
   •   A flat grassy area for picnicking, relaxing and playing
   •   A vault restroom
   •   A new drinking fountain and shelter at the tennis courts

Phases 2 and 3 of the Wulf Park Master Plan envision a mountain bike course, disc golf course, zipline and more, some of it extending into the adjacent Denver Mountain Park. The master site plan and public comments are available online.

Jeffco Open Space allocates a certain amount of money from the half-cent open space sales tax annually to be distributed as grants to worthy projects requested by any of the 12 cities of Jefferson County and the 12 recreation or metro districts. Click here to view photos.
