Twin Silo Park
Twin Silo Park is community-driven park that spans 54 acres and invites people to interact with others and enjoy a sense of place. Winner of a Fort Collins, CO Urban Design award, this park is truly original. Cre8Play was honored to design and build the Twin Silo Park play environment and pavilion.
The focal point of the park is two renovated 51′ silos. Fitted with a spiral staircase, slide entrance, and more, the first silo offers a one-of-a-kind style of play. Regular stairs would be far to common– so to get to the top of the silo, there is a double-helix climber that offers two ways to climb to the top- both with a different challenge. At the top of the slide are red and green lights to alert when it is best to slide. Within this tallest slide in Fort Collins are even more fun gadgets. Funny and entertaining sound effects play as the child moves down the slide. They range from a sonic blast to a toilet flushing! The slide begins in one silo and after two full spirals, brings the rider into the second silo where there are zip lines leading to another area of the park.
A suspended bridge between one of the silos and the rafters of the barn allows for another area of fun. Kids have a balance beam to tackle with full protection from falling on both sides of the narrow bridge and a net of rope below to play in. The barn is made accessible by wheelchair and others with disabilities as well as the bathrooms.
The park is lit for nighttime play. The words TWIN SILO are cut out of the tops of the silos and are fitted with LED lights that change color. Creative, original and interactive fun makes Twin Silo Park unique. Check out the video.View All
