Pine River Library Park

Bayfield, CO

Groundwork Studio worked with the Pine River Library and the Town of Bayfield to design-build a new park that will serve as a multi-generational community center. The project was initiated by the library in response to middle school students overusing the library grounds after school.

Community engagement included presenting a 3D physical model and presentation boards with play equipment and design feature options and interviews with targeted stakeholders. The community voted on their favorite play equipment and design features. Groundwork Studio held a Pop-Up Playground as a joint event to celebrate the groundbreaking and evoke comment on the Bayfield Parks, Open Space, Trails and Recreation Master Plan.

The park serves a broad age range within the Bayfield community, including play equipment for ages 2-12, a loop trail for parents with strollers and dog walkers and multi-use courts with four-square, pickleball and basketball. The final park design maximizes features in a relatively small space.
