East Greeley Natural Area Coming Soon!

City of Greeley staff have been busy creating this new Natural Area & Trail in East Greeley.
They've been are adding walking paths and a nature play area. Things really started to progress the month of July. See some of the fun pieces being installed this summer, and be sure to check it out when you're in the neighborhood!

East Memorial Natural Area Phase 1

Phase 1 of the East Greeley Natural Area, located east of Discovery Bay Waterpark, is underway and construction will begin spring 2021.

The Culture, Parks and Recreation Department has developed a design incorporating input received by area residents and organizations. Residents will have the ability to share additional input during the official naming process in 2022.

The East Greeley Natural Area will include:

  • Three entrance points to a walking path surrounding natural areas
  • Climbing features with an obstacle course layout
  • Nature areas encouraging unstructured play activities
  • Art components designed into the landscape throughout the area

This site will offer residents and visitors an opportunity to engage with the outdoors in unique and fun ways. Natural grasses and wildlife habitats, which may take years to fully develop, throughout the natural area will provide youth and adults an opportunity to connect with nature and play outdoors for many years to come. 

Phase I project completion: Fall 2021


This project was made possible by the Colorado Health Foundation and GOCO Grant funding
