Powers Park is a unique 5-acre park in Littleton, Colorado. Not only does it have a playground and shelter, but it also has a pond that fills up after a rainstorm. In this blog, we’ll talk about everything to do with Powers Park.
Julie Norblom's video shows her dog at the pond in nearby Sterne Park!
We’ll start off with the parking situation. There is street parking along West Powers Avenue, South Huron Street, and West Berry Avenue. There is also parking next to the nursing home at the intersection of South Fox Street and West Berry Avenue.
Powers Park is undergoing a redesign. There will be 0.4 miles of sidewalks; as of right now, there is already a small sidewalk going around the pond and park. There will also be a terrace overlook with native plants and ornamental grasses, shelters and picnic tables, benches, a sledding hill, swings, and more. As of right now, a Senior Housing building is being developed to the east of the park.
They are also planning to renovate the playground. There will be new play structures!
The renovation is going to make this park so much more beautiful and in touch with nature.
The pond has wetland vegetation because there is a large quantity of water. You can see a spillway on the western side of the park.
There is a little area that has space for a field and events to the east of the playground. It has a 2% slope and offers a great view when the pond is full!
Chad Anderson says, "It is nice to take a walk, play some volleyball, or just chill! It really didn't have as many amenities that other parks have! But it you just walk to take that walk or chill with your friends then this is exactly what you are looking for!"
Powers Park Playground
I am going to cover what the playground looks like right now, before the renovation.
There is a shelter with a picnic table underneath. Although there are no benches at the playground, there are plenty of trees to sit under (and the playground itself has lots of shade).
Powers Park Playground has 2 traditional swings, monkey bars, 4 slides (1 of which is swirly), games, stairs, and a fireman pole. It’s a relatively small playground compared to something like Elati Park (which has a 20-foot-tall tube slide).
