The centerpiece of this hike is South Platte Park, which has been thirty years in the making, ever since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed the Chatfield Dam and Reservoir project after a devastating flood in 1965. The park you see today was assembled one parcel at a time and now encompasses 650 acres. The floodplain, extensively gravel mined since the 1950s, was painstakingly reclaimed. Today the largest gravel pit is a lake, and the land and water quality has been restored so that the habitat supports more than 225 species of birds and 23 species of fish. The city of Littleton owns the land, while the South Suburban Park and Recreation District administers the park.
