Highlands Ranch will soon be home to a new historic park, Fly’n B Park. This park will encompass 37 acres that were once part of the 140 acre cattle ranch of Johnny Bowen which he called “the best little cattle ranch in Colorado.”
The area which is in the northeastern corner of Highlands Ranch off Plaza Dr., is currently being transformed. The park will have a theme of water, its history, imprortance and benefit. Highline Canal, dating back to the 19th century, travels through what will be the park and there are numerous ponds in the area.
The first phase of the park is underway. It includes the renovation of the Plews House, built in 1906. This historic home will be the center of activities and a focal point for the park. Other parts of this first phase include parking facilities, trails, a bridge over Highline Canal, play features and a park shelter with a pier at one of the ponds.
I am excited about this new historical park. It sounds like it will be a great spot for relaxation. You can learn more by visiting www.highlandsranch.org and clicking on the Parks link where you will find a project file.
