Little Dry Creek Open Space
East of Depew Street and west of Wolff Street
There are three distinct parts of the Little Dry Creek Open Space in this area. The area west of Sheridan Boulevard is 7.9 acres in size and protects 240 feet of frontage along the west side of Sheridan Boulevard. The creek flows through a grassy meadow in this area. The creek was rebuilt over 25 years ago when the subdivision was developed to the south. This open space ends at the Arvada city limit by Thompson Elementary School.
The Wolff Run Open Space area northeast of Sheridan Boulevard and 76th Avenue is 15.9 acres in size and protects 530 feet of frontage on the east side of Sheridan Boulevard. This property was acquired by the city in 1996. The Shaw Heights Tributary (creek) flows across this grassy meadow. The 18 acre Wolff Run Park abuts the east side of this open space forming one of the largest “green” spaces in south Westminster.
The 16.6 acre area south of 75th Avenue and east of Sheridan Boulevard is a grassy meadow along the creek. The creek was reconstructed in 1987 and flows within a concrete channel. This part of the Little Dry Creek Open Space was assembled through acquisitions in 1987, 2004 and 2009.
The Little Dry Creek Trail hugs the northeast edge of the open space. The open space preserves 1000 feet of frontage along the east side of Sheridan Boulevard, south of 75th Avenue.
The last section of the Little Dry Creek Open Space runs southeast along the creek from England Park to Federal Boulevard. The 33.36-acre open space was acquired in pieces from 1996-2012. The Little Dry Creek Trail follows the creek out of Westminster where it eventually joins the Clear Creek Trail. This section of the Little Dry Creek Open Space is undergoing redevlopment as a part of the Westminster Station Transit Oriented Development.
