The City of Glenwood Springs will reopen Two Rivers Park on May 23, 2020 after completing riverfront and boat ramp improvements. The Park has been closed since October 7, 2019 for construction.
The project included: excavation of the in-river railroad abutment and industrial debris along the park’s shoreline, installation of a river walk trail, protection of beach areas, an improved boat ramp and staging area, ADA connectivity, restrooms for river users, and landscaping along the riverfront.
River users will now be able to take out at the newly improved boat ramp at the park. For the first week after reopening, Boat Ramp attendants will be on site to assist with information on boat ramp use as well as social distancing reminders. The public bathrooms at Two Rivers Park will remain closed while finishing construction, and will reopen when all City public restrooms reopen.
Social distancing requirements will still be in place for Two Rivers Park users. Per the State Safer at Home guidelines, Local and personal recreation outside is okay when you can observe 6 feet of distance between participants and limit group sizes to 10 or fewer. 6 feet of distance between non household members should always be maintained while recreating at the park.
“We are excited to reopen this wonderful amenity we have in our community. We want to provide, of course, an outlet for people to be physically and mentally active as we grapple with this new reality going forward, however caution park users to recreate responsibly and safely,” said Mayor Jonathan Godes
Heyl Construction and City staff thank the residents and visitors of Glenwood Springs for their patience during this project. For more information on City projects, please visit www.cogs.us/projects.
