The South Platte Park - Four decades of partnership between the City of Littleton, South Suburban Park and Recreation District, the United States Army Corps of Engineers, the Colorado Water Conservation Board, the citizens of Littleton and numerous private property owners have resulted in one of the most magnificent natural areas in the country.
Extensively gravel-mined for more than 30 years, the 100-year flood plain is now home to more than 225 species of birds including bald eagle, red-tailed hawk and great blue heron. Wildlife includes beavers, muskrats, skunks, raccoons, deer, coyotes and foxes. Lizards, toads, snakes and frogs occur along with 23 species of fish.
As the Denver area continues to grow, the wildlife, open space, and recreational opportunities offered by South Platte Park are more important than ever to thousands of visitors. The City of Littleton, South Suburban Park and Recreation District and the people of Littleton who love and have built the park are pledged to protect it, while balancing the needs and interests of city tax payers and adjacent property owners.
The evolution of South Platte Park has been painstaking. Today, the park is home to more than 350,000 annual visitors and an abundance of wild life. A model of cooperation, perseverance and community pride, South Platte Park will inspire many generations to come.
