Salida Parks and Recreation began improvements in Centennial Park in Fall 2020. The park is located adjacent to the Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center in Salida, Colorado. Improvements include a world class 14,000 SF skatepark. Grindline Skateparks designed the high altitude facility and collaborated with the Friends of Salida Skateparks to solicit their feedback as well as the community’s for the park design. Valerian worked with Grindline, Salida Parks, and Martin Martin to provide site planning for the skatepark, a new park walkway, surrounding landcape improvements, and an entry plaza. Valerian and the team worked closely with Salida Parks to locate the skatepark while considering the existing stand of trees and future improvements outlined in the City of Salida Parks and Recreation Open Space and Trail Master Plan.
