Veltus Park ribbon cutting, volunteer day this Saturday
The City of Glenwood Springs invites community members to celebrate the completion of the Veltus Park Shoreline Restoration Project from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20.
The event will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony by city officials to mark the completion of the shoreline restoration construction project. The public is then invited to help with the final plantings. Tools, gloves, water, and lunch will be provided for volunteers.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to officially show off the new shoreline at Veltus Park,” Mayor Mike Gamba said in a news release. “As a council priority, it’s satisfying to see this important project completed. Veltus is one of Glenwood Springs’ most beloved parks, and it will be especially meaningful for the community to participate in the plantings that will endure for decades to come.”
According to the release, the shoreline restoration work at Veltus Park was completed to prevent future erosion at the park from the Roaring Fork River. Construction included the removal of previous concrete walkways, debris and railings, while adding new railings and improved river access.
