All of the Westerly Creek North open space opens this month with Mayor Michael Hancock presiding over the ribbon cutting at 8:30 am on August 17. The ceremony will take place near the Dayton St./E. 35th Ave. intersection. The $12 million project began in March 2015 and has rehabilitated the remaining 64 acres of Westerly Creek Park, roughly that portion north of the Central Park Recreation Center.
The overall project included major landform reshaping, removal of construction rubble, streambed realignment, revegetation and new trail construction. The new park provides new connectivity to the Sand Creek Regional Greenway at the confluence of Westerly Creek and Sand Creek.
