Midtown Home Plate Park

Denver, Colorado

A model for new urban communities in Denver, Midtown honors the past while it embraces the future. Midtown celebrates the vibrant local culture, with Home Plate Park as one of the key activated spaces in the community. Exactly the shape of a home plate, the park is at the end of Main Street and of the Midtown Promenade, making Home Plate Park a central outdoor gathering place for an extraordinarily walkable community. Brookfield expressed a desire for a truly different water experience. The result: a uniquely interactive water park, totally different from the typical neighborhood swim club. The inspiration for the interactive water feature derived from the historic use of irrigation canals, ditches, and flood irrigation for agriculture in this area. A series of fun, interactive, and operable “flood gates” or “rills” allow kids of all ages to manipulate the flow of water. There’s also a computer-operated fountain that everyone loves to play in, play with, and watch.
