Sugar Beet Play Structure

Artist
Mario Miguel Echevarria
Year
2019
Location
9th Street and Vine Drive
Description

Park Planning & Development staff worked with Mario Miguel Echevarria and Earthscape, an award-winning playground company, to develop the iconic play structure for Sugar Beet Park. The structure was on display at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery before being placed in the park. The sugar beet is a natural fit for the theme and location of the new park at the intersection of Vine Drive and 9th Street, near the historic site of the Great Western Sugar Factory where sugar beets were processed. Special thanks to the Northside Neighborhood Advisory Committee for their involvement in developing the concept for this play structure.
