Violet Park - What's the Vision?

by Osman Parvez

What does the future of this park look like?  

Wait - where is Violet Park, again?

If you don't know, you're not alone.   It's located on Violet Avenue, just east of Broadway.   It's directly adjacent to Violet Crossing.  

Here's a map of the area.




For now, Violet park is city owned open space.  It's slated for a future park, however.  For nearby residents, the park has the potential to add serious value. It's also directly adjacent to the North Boulder Sub Community and Nobo Arts District

The 2014 approved budget shows $500,000 going into the park's development in 2019. 

As undeveloped open space, it was heavily ravaged by last September's floods.      Flood mitigation occurred this spring - a process of removing debris and sediment from the water channel. 



This shot was taken from Broadway, just north of Violet during the September flood.   Fourmile creek had overflown its banks, taken out the bike path, and carrying massive amounts of debris. 

Now here is what Violet Park looks like today.   Its' a weed patch.
