Mira Vista Park

Mira Vista Park
Fountain, CO
A complex and unclear ownership history, safety concerns over a nearby irrigation ditch, and an existing pond with an uncertain water supply were the challenges presented in designing this 12-acre park. After design and approval of the Mira Vista PUD proceeded smoothly, I directed design of this park, which included passive recreation areas, picnic areas and structures, xeriscape demonstration gardens, and preservation of mature native cottonwood trees. I also wrote and coordinated community design surveys, and facilitated a community meeting.
Total budget: $1.2 million.
