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.  Below is a rendering of the new playground coming in Fall 2021. Features include a Silly Tree, Twist & Shout, Bunny and Mushroom climbers, Spinami, Swings and more. Something for all ages.

UPDATE:

September 9 -

Residents will start to see some activity and fencing at Broadview Park the week of September 13 (weather permitting) as the City’s Streets division begins demolition of the old playground equipment and the surrounding concrete. New concrete will be formed and poured the week of September 20. While we wait for the new playground equipment to arrive, be sure to check out Ramseier Farm Park (28th Ave. & C Street) or nearby Franklin Park (31st Ave & 6th Street) to “get your fun on”.
We know everyone is excited about the new playground, but remember, this is a construction zone. For safety, please be sure to stay outside the fencing until the project is complete.

FAQ

A: The existing Broadview Park playground equipment will be removed. New playground equipment will be installed in the existing playground footprint. The existing picnic structure, with attached restrooms, will also be removed. New restrooms and a picnic shelter will be constructed on the east side of the park.

The City of Greeley budgets for regular upgrades to aging amenities in our neighborhood parks. The upgrades planned for Broadview Park will provide users with a more enjoyable park experience.

Q: Is the playground size shrinking or getting larger?

A: Safety standards, accessibility, age ranges and budget are just a few of the many factors that contribute to playground layout. The new playground layout will maximize the space within the existing footprint and likely not extend beyond the current boundary.

A: No. Construction will be limited to the east side of the park and will not affect practices or events on the west side of the park.

Q: How long is construction going to last?

A: Construction is planned to begin approximately May of 2021 and is expected to be completed in October of 2021. During this time, the picnic shelter and restrooms will be closed to the public.

Q: Will there be any street closures?

A: No, closing nearby streets is not necessary for this project.

Q: How is this project being paid for?

A: The picnic shelter and restroom are funded through the City’s Food Tax for capital improvements. The playground refresh is funded through the Quality of Life/Imagine Greeley fund.
