Broadview Park Playground Refresh

The aging public amenities at Broadview Park are being upgraded to better serve the needs of the surrounding neighborhood. The primary goal of this project is to build a new playground that fosters experience, growth, fun, and engagement for visitors. New restrooms and a picnic shelter will also be constructed at this time.

Thank you to the Broadview neighborhood and Greeley residents for completing our recent Broadview survey. Nearly 100 of you shared your hopes for the future of Broadview Park.  So, now what? The survey results are being used to guide the design and creation of the new playground. Once complete, the design plans will be shared here. Be sure to check back in the coming weeks to see the new and innovative Broadview Park.
