Ken Pelton Nature Park

KEN PELTON NATURE PARK

The purpose of this project was to provide master planning services, preliminary design, and construction documents for a new park in Watford City named in memoriam of former Mayor, Kent Pelton. The design team, along with Watford City Parks and Recreation, and community stakeholders, worked to create a phased master plan for a passive recreation park with a focus on bringing families together for community events. The new park is situated along the banks of Cherry Creek and provides access to walking trails, park shelters, restrooms, and a 300 person performance amphitheater. Children in the community especially love the fishing pond and playground equipment. Community events, such as farmer’s markets and vendor shows are also held at this now beloved location.
