The location of Grant Frontier Park was one of the first places gold was discovered in the S. Platte River near Denver. The centerpiece of the park, a 200-year-old cottonwood tree, was protected and is now surrounded by seat boulders, a plaza and picnic area. River access was restored by constructing a secondary channel and concrete jetty, separating the main park from a new island.
Historic Montana City, a frontier town educational zone was expanded and updated, including a new restroom building. Access to the river and the play areas along the banks are ADA compliant. A new playground, shade structures, walking trails and retaining walls provide additional areas of play, and a new parking lot allows for additional public access.
