The City of Arvada and Red Rocks Community College are working together to construct a unique destination park in the Arvada Ridge area.  The primary goal of the Arvada Holistic Health and Fitness Park is to provide a unique and meaningful public park space within a dense, transit oriented neighborhood.  The park will focus on offering the community a welcoming place to exercise the body and mind with a variety of outdoor holistic health and fitness techniques, as well as spaces for public recreation.  We are also considering opportunities for public art throughout the park.  This park aims to help the community become active participants in their health and wellness and provide a place where park users can exercise and practice physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of wellness that promote whole-body health.  The park will also act as an outdoor classroom and research laboratory for students at Red Rocks Community College, enhancing practical educational opportunities for the students enrolled in the various degrees and certificates in the Holistic Health program.

One of the main goals for the park is to enhance the user experience by providing not only outdoor fitness opportunities, but also:

  • Promoting participation in traditional and non-traditional outdoor fitness activities
  • Celebrating the identity of this unique and valuable park that promotes mind and body wellbeing
  • Offering a peaceful place within a dense neighborhood where users can enjoy a diversity of spaces for deep contemplation mixed with active zones for physical challenge and renewal
  • Creating memorable user experiences by providing an aesthetically pleasing environment

The City and the Design Team are looking at possible park improvements that may include, but are not limited to:

  • enhanced park gateway / entry
  • challenge zone with fitness staircase
  • therapy zone with reflexology path
  • vitality zone with a pavilion for yoga, Qi gong and other mind and body activities
  • associated walkways, flexible seating, water station, lighting, landscape, art / sensory installations, adaptive recreation elements, and demonstration garden
