Neighborhood Welcomes New Greeley West Park Playground
City of Greeley Parks Division officials are excited to announce the completion of Greeley West Park’s refreshed playground at 2300 42nd Avenue.
The city’s Culture, Parks and Recreation Department, Burke Play the Moves You, and A to Z Recreation collaborated to make this playground refresh possible.
“We’re delighted to have this new playground finished for the community,” said Anders, City of Greeley parks planner. “The parks division works tirelessly to improve outdoor spaces for our residents and visitors to discover.”
In a 2021 survey, the parks division staff collected suggestions from residents and visitors for the playground refresh project, resulting in the following play features being requested and implemented into the new site:
- shade areas,
- and more climbing features.
Demolition of the old playground began in the fall of 2021. Construction started spring of 2022 to create a more inviting playground accessible for youth and adults.
Playground improvements included expanding the play area with the installation of new larger play equipment, adding accessible play features for various abilities, installing sod and sidewalks around the playground, and parking lot improvements.
