town of Norwood

Parks, Trails and Open Space

 

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Town of Norwood is working in conjunction with the University Technical Assistance Program at the University of Colorado in Denver to create a master plan that provides guidance on ways to elevate and connect the parks, trails, and open spaces of Norwood.  Five city-owned parcels are being considered for improvements (see right).  Opportunities for trails and greenways to connect these parcels and other existing public places in Norwood are also being explored. This website is meant to be a resource and platform from which the residents of Norwood can communicate with the design team and be kept up-to-date on the progress of the project.  We want to hear from you!

project goals

Connectivity

Create a trail system in Norwood that connects open spaces, parks and other public places with neighborhoods.  Improve access and encourage residents to visit public places through non-motorized methods.

accessibility

Design and improve the parks, trails, open spaces and public places so that they are accessible for persons of all ages and abilities.

safety

Plan trails in safe spaces and encourage safe trail and traffic interactions.  Provide amenities, such as crosswalks and lighting, that make residents feel safe as they travel along trails and visit the public spaces of their town.  

interactive

Provide educational opportunities or amenities along trails that encourage residents and visitors to engage in healthy activities or learn about the town and area. 

identity

Create opportunities to showcase the unique identity of the town of Norwood past, present and future.
