About the author: Andrea is a seasoned park enthusiast who holds a great love for discovery unique fun each day. In 2016, along with her children, they will have played at over 200 separate playgrounds. Playgrounds are the family’s getaway to celebrate and enjoy life.
Habitat Park is one of the best climbing/nature parks I have ever seen. There is a considerable amount of open space at the park and actual playground structure; please take caution if you have toddlers or non-climbers because climbing and building is what makes this park unique.
An additional benefit about Habitat Park is its visibility from the highway. If you are driving on I25, and stuck in traffic, the big accented yellow net climber should grab your attention. When you are off the highway and drive up to the park, you will be surprised that such a marvelous habitat is so close to an industrial background. It is like a secluded sanctuary right next to the city.
At Habitat Park the preservation of nature is astonishing. Starting with the big bulldozers that can be climbed on, or walked under, to the logs that are also for climbing or building a fort or teepee. Last but not least, the South Platte River holds so much history.
In regards to history the closer you walk to the river you can educate yourself and others about the history of the land. While doing so you will notice the Spree building which heads up The Greenway Foundation, offering environmental education through field days and summer camps. In that vicinity, a toddler section is available in which a young child may walk or crawl through a tree, stand on stumps, and/or play in the sand. There aren’t specific things for infants like baby swings, but they could be held and walked around or sit with you on the landscaped grass in the center of the park.
Take A Quick Tour Of Habitat Park!
As first mentioned, since the play area is spread out in sections, you may have trouble viewing all your children if they choose to wonder. For instance, you may have toddlers in one section, and older kids at the playground resulting in a lack of visibility for all children. Please watch your children closely by being next to them at all times as the river is close and the logs are heavy.
If your children love to build, you may want to pack a lunch and stay awhile because the log section of the habitat is so intriguing. In fact, if you feel comfortable with your children playing freely, you could bring a book and relax on or near the rocks by the log section.
Overall, this park is an amazing habitat. It is filled with adventure, captures history and excels by having a leading playground structure. Check out this park and continue to Love Colorado Living!
