The Bluff Lake Nature Center is a 123-acre open space and important gateway to nature for several communities in Denver and Aurora. As the only urban wildlife refuge in the City of Denver, it is home to an abundance of animals and native plants which thrive in a range of habitats and ecosystems unique to the High Plains of Colorado. Bluff Lake Nature Center is Denver’s largest open space managed as native habitat and Denver’s only nonprofit nature center; the space includes a 9-acre lake that straddles 2/3rds of a mile of Sand Creek. Superbloom and Shape Architecture Studio are collaborating with Bluff Lake Nature Center to understand how the surrounding community imagines the future campus and potential improvements through an inclusive community engagement and visioning process.
