Missouri Avenue in Longmont: Pre and Post Restoration

Missouri Avenue in Longmont, post-flood condition in 2014 before the area was restored.  A few things to notice:

The latest view (Google Earth in January 2016, probably captured in late summer 2015) showing both the completed creek bank restoration project and the rebuilt pool:

The new pool is built further back from the creek, on the grounds of the old playground (the new playground being constructed to the left of the pool complex and to the right of the volleyball court.  For comparison purposes, both of the surrounding pool buildings were retained in their original locations.  You can also see that creek banks have been restored with who- knows-how-many thousand of tons of dirt that was trucked in.

The park is not as green as it was two  years ago, likely from getting beaten up from all of the construction projects going on.  2016 should be back to normal.
