Explore your backyard.
Boulevard One’s decidedly urban setting still satisfies your love of the outdoors. Neighborhood paths dotted with eclectic art wind through a creatively designed community park, pocket parks and the public plaza. You’ll discover thought-provoking public art, intimate benches, comfy nooks and light-filled corners around every turn. At Boulevard One, it’s easy to step outside for an ample helping of people watching, latte lingering, dog walking, e-reading, friend meeting and remote working.
With a variety of engaging parks and open space throughout Boulevard One, residents will have plenty of ways to take in the sunshine. When fully developed, almost two miles of sidewalks will interconnect Boulevard One’s greenery, dotted with over 5,000 shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses. By preserving 39 mature existing trees and adding 350 new trees, Boulevard One’s shade will increase by 250% over time. It’s estimated that approximately four acres of manicured turf grass will reduce water consumption by 50%, and about 5.5 acres of irrigated shortgrass will help Boulevard One remain green using little water.
Scheduled for completion summer of 2018, the 5.5-acre community park will foster a sense of community, with new trees, art, play area and natural space. The park is expected to be a social and recreational center for Boulevard One. The finishing touches are underway now, including adding paths and hardscaping, plus planting trees, shrubs perennials and grass.
This .8-acre neighborhood park in the southwest corner of Boulevard One showcases the community’s heritage by integrating the Air Force medallion that once adorned an Air Force administration building. Engraved quotes in a tiered sandstone wall will flank the medallion and reflect the diverse voices of citizens who helped transform Lowry Air Force Base into a new community. Scheduled for completion later this year, the park also honors the original farmland by featuring kitchen herbs, berries, apple trees and picnic tables.
