PCL Construction Transforms Two Civic-Minded Parks in Boulder and Denver

Paco Sanchez Park, Denver.

DENVERPCL Construction, Inc. (PCL) recently completed construction work to transform two popular parks in Colorado; Re-Imagine Play, Phase I at Paco Sanchez Park in Denver, as well as the Civic Area in Boulder.

The work completed at the Re-Imagine Play at Paco Sanchez Park includes a new and innovative playground named “Re-Imagine Play”.  The playground’s inventive design features a complex, 30-foot-tall climbing tower that resembles a vintage microphone, paying homage to the park’s namesake, a radio host and activist. Re-Imagine Play is an innovative concept that goes beyond the traditional playground. It is intended to be a multi-generational activity and play area that gives park users of all ages the opportunity to remain active and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.  More creative equipment will be at added to the park next summer when phase two of construction is completed — the first project to start construction with funding from the GO bond passed by Denver voters last year.

Boulder’s new Civic Area Master Plan includes transformation of the Civic Area into a unique reflection of the community’s shared values and diversity. The Civic Area provides space and programs for locals to gather, recreate, eat, learn, deliberate, and innovate. Construction at the Civic Area includes the addition of rain gardens, wetland buffers and planting areas; the re-routing of the existing bike and pedestrian paths; and the careful creation of unique hardscapes such as recycled cordwood benches and large boulder seating.

“PCL is proud of our community involvement and of having the opportunity  to provide our services to important places like Denver’s Paco Sanchez Park and Boulder’s Civic Area, where families and children can enjoy time spent together in a healthy and fun environment,” said Steve Kovach of PCL. “It was our honor and pleasure to be selected for these two very important projects.”

The Denver PCL office has more than 40 years experience of building successful commercial residential, hospitality and educational facilities along with site infrastructure projects throughout Colorado.
