Improvements Coming to Reynolds Landing

Reynolds Landing is along the South Platte River, nestled between Breckenridge Brewery and Lee Gulch. The development of the area has been a multi-phase process, including the most recent project that included improved picnic structures, a natural play area, a full-service bathroom and a larger parking area that were completed in 2016. Now, the next phase is being planned as the city is partnering with the South Platte Working Group, South Suburban Parks and Recreation, and the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District. This phase will focus on work in the river. This includes softening three separate drops along the river that will improve safety and accessibility to those enjoying tubing, kayaking or just sitting dangling their feet in the river. Additionally, the city recently took possession of the private home located south of the park. The Superchi family, who farmed the land for decades, sold the property to the city in 2005. “The Superchi farmstead is a gem making Reynolds Landing not just a recreational amenity but a potential learning center,” Public Works Director Keith Reester noted. “As the community design phase begins we’ll be looking for ideas on how to use the property to engage the community with the river in totally new ways.” Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman is looking forward to moving into this next phase. “Reynolds Landing is a key component in the public space and recreational use plans for the South Platte River corridor. We are creating an amenity that will be enjoyed by many and for many years to come,” said Brinkman.
