River Run Park – Sheridan, CO
Romtec designed and supplied a multiuser restroom building at the River Run Park in Sheridan, Colorado. This park was developed as part of multiple improvement projects along the South Platte River in the Denver metropolitan area. The new improvements completed on this project have enhanced the health of the river and increased access to recreation. Among the improvements were replacements to the existing grade control drop structures in the river. The new drops are smaller and allow fish to move more freely in the river. Recreational water features were also installed at several points in the park to produce artificial waves that are perfect for river surfing, kayaking, and tubing year round. The flood conveyance of the river was also improved upon to keep residents and buildings safe. Outside of the water is a full park with multiple hiking trails and even a picnic shelter. The public restroom building Romtec supplied has an easy to spot red roof that matches other structures in the park and a river stone style wainscot on the exterior. This park is one of several river restoration projects being completed along the South Platte River and has even increased the recreation opportunities available to residents!
