Danny Kendrick Park East Playground

Project Background

Danny Kendrick Park East is located at 11960 West 70th Way along Ralston Creek in central Arvada. The existing playground needs to be relocated so that the City of Arvada can install a new sanitary sewer line in the spring of 2024 along the Ralston Creek corridor

A new playground will be constructed to the northwest of its current location to prevent any conflicts with the underground utilities.  

Once construction begins for the sewer line project, the current playground will be closed for demolition. It is estimated that the current playground will be demolished in February. Construction on the new playground will begin once construction on the sewer line is complete. Danny Kendrick Park East Playground Map

Project Timeline:

  • Summer 2023: Survey period for playground themes and equipment.
  • Fall 2023: The City’s Parks and Urban Design team, in collaboration with a selected consultant, is reviewing the results of the survey and incorporating that feedback into the final design.
  • Winter 2023: The Parks and Urban team will share the final playground design with the community and order the play equipment from the manufacturer.
  • Winter 2024: Existing playground closed for demolition. 
  • Summer 2024: Construction on the new playground anticipated to start.

Please keep in mind this is an estimated timeline that is subject to change and weather delays. 

Community Engagement for New Playground

The playground project began with a community survey in the summer of 2023 where community members could provide their preferences for playground themes and equipment. The survey was open through Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2023. 

The City's Parks and Urban design team is reviewing the results of the survey and hiring a consultant to create design options for the new playground. Using feedback from the community survey, the design team will then decide on the final design for the new playground and share it with the community. Construction on the new playground is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2024.

Ralston Creek Trail Detour 

Once construction on the sewer line project begins in the spring of 2024, the section of the Ralston Creek Trail that goes along Danny Kendrick Park East will be detoured south along W. 70th Ave.
