The framework plan for
La Junta Town Park works to restore the historic walls and
park house, develop three sets of improvements including
the Park Edge, Park Access and Program, and a Riparian Grove,
along with a successional planting scheme reinforces park
Goals for the project include identifying a series of improvements
that can be implemented with minimal construction impacts,
and maximum respect for history.
Improvements in the Riparian Grove include constructing
ramps to provide access to water's edge, and permeable landscape
zones to improve water quality and provide variety in the
landscape. At the Park Edge, multi-use park edge paths and
'green shelters' will create a connection to the town, and
Park Access and Program improvements will focus on modifying
existing access to provide one-way loop with on-street parking
and a green at the bandstand.
