S*Park (Sustainability Park) celebrated in 5280 Magazine

Wenk Associates served as the landscape architects for this sustainable, mixed-used development in Five Points, Denver. Inspired by the informal nature of the existing site, the landscape seeks to create a social hub for residents by providing community garden plots, social gathering nodes, and modest, flexible lawn spaces for leisure and games. On-site stormwater is managed within the park through a series of inter-connected rain gardens, creating a natural and wild landscape within the context of a dense ‘ultra-green’ urban development.
