GameTime, in partnership with with Colorado Parks & Recreation Association (CPRA) and PlayCore, offered up $1.5M in matching funds to redevelop playgrounds throughout Colorado. Guess what Erie? We are on the list.

Each of the 10 new playgrounds, including Crescent Park, will be designated as National Demonstration Sites for data collection and will contribute data to highlight best practices and outcomes achieved.

Staff has worked over the last several months to identify what our playground systems lack. We looked at our Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails Master Plan, initial community feedback and our five year capital improvement plan (CIP). Crescent Park was selected for this project.

Here is what Crescent Park will look like:

1. Large, custom, multi-age play adventurous play structure.

2. Infinity bowl - great for independent play, a user tilts his/her body slightly to get the bowl moving.

3. Traditional belt swings combined with a toddler swing and adaptive swing.

4. Up to six children can stand, sit or climb on the nets while the Twirl spins around the 10'-tall center post. With climbing and spinning play, KidNetix Twirl offers a wide range of play benefits, including enhanced balance and coordination, vestibular stimulation and decision-making skills

5. Custom Challenge Course - Exciting challenges make fitness fun. See how kids progress over time as they compete against friends or against their own personal records. Extending play from the structure through the Challenge Course to make it even more challenge.

Proposed surfacing (the stuff you land on) consists of Engineered Wood Fiber on the play structure side and playground grass on the Challenge Course side.
