Re-Imagining Delta Park

Delta Park is a 6-acre neighborhood park in East Greeley. The park is positioned in the middle of nearby apartments, practically serving as a backyard for many homes. The City of Greeley is partnering with The Trust for Public Land (TPL), Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains, and other key partners to re-envision the space and address the limited opportunities for recreation and relaxation. The City hopes to build a sense of community connection, ownership, and pride in this neighborhood park and asks residents and community partners to guide the park's renovation.

Project Goals

By engaging with the community before renovating Delta Park, we hope to:

  • Increase the use of Delta Park by the whole community, specifically the people who live close to the park, a large portion of whom are immigrants and refugee families;
  • Improve understanding and cross-cultural relationships;
  • Build a foundation of trust;
  • Renovate the park based on the residents' shared preferences and priorities.

Community Engagement Strategies

In support of the project goals, the City and TPL will:

  • employing the assistance of resident experts;
  • holding community events;
  • supporting culturally relevant programs in the park; and
  • creating opportunities to listen and learn from the community.

The books double as a literacy tool to improve reading skills in the community. Local schools, libraries, and the surrounding community will distribute the storybooks for free. Unite for Literacy will also provide the books online, narrated in many languages such as English, Spanish, Somali, Arabic, and more.

    Our October 'Walk With Me in the Park' event was so much fun with a Fall carnival including games, candy, conversation, and even a mechanical bull. One of the highlights of the day, besides the mechanical bull, were several display boards showing what the consulting and design team have heard so far from residents, current opportunities and limitations in the park, and potential ideas for how Delta Park might look in the future. Themes such as Gather, Play, Sports, and Gardens were heard again and again from residents and can be seen throughout the display board photos and illustrations. The boards are now being shared throughout the neighborhood for additional input and feedback.

    Take a look at the display boards and share your ideas. We want to hear from you!
