Cherry Creek Eco Park Opening

A rubber duck race, ribbon cutting and individuals and families viewing wildlife highlighted the opening of the 75-acre Cherry Creek Valley Ecological Park on July 11. For the Cherry Creek restoration project, ECI teamed with 5 governmental agencies. To ensure that site improvements were completed with minimal land/creek disturbance, ECI built a new mile-long channel to divert Cherry Creek, installed 14,000 tons of rock in the original channel area, excavated 60,000 cubic yards of soil, and placed more than 12,000 cubic yards of concrete grade control structures and 300,000 square feet of Coir Erosion Control Blanket.
