Parks staff and the Parks, Trails, and Recreation Commission (PTRC) are planning to replace the play rocks in Dahlia Hollow Park. The play rocks were installed in 2014 to create an amenity for visitors and are a popular destination for local families. The rocks are made of Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC). In 2018, the City received multiple calls stating that the rocks were starting to shed fiberglass fibers. Staff found an appropriate sealant to coat the rocks and seal the fiberglass in. This solution has worked as a temporary fix – however, the rocks are approaching the end of their usable life. Staff and PTRC plan to purchase new play rocks using the one-time grant the City received of $25,017.15 last fall from the Metropolitan Football Stadium District from the sale of the Broncos franchise to be used specifically for children’s activities or amenities.
