Carla Madison Recreation Center

Denver, Colorado

StudioCPG is provided landscape architectural services for design of the new Carla Madison Recreation Center, Denver’s first urban recreation center, that houses a complex recreational program for the densely populated neighborhoods surrounding Capitol Hill. The 3.5-acre property, bounded by Colfax Avenue, Josephine Street, 16th Street and the City Park Esplanade, contains a range of program requirements including parking, an entry plaza, water quality areas, and dog park, and the Recreation Center, while dealing with diverse, urban edge conditions.


The project is LEED Gold certified and all landscape design is guided by the Denver Water Board’s seven principles of Xeriscape addressing appropriate planting zones, soil improvements, efficient irrigation, mulching, alternatives to blue grasses, and maintenance needs. Site components include a green wall and green roof features and storm management/water quality facilities integrated into site improvements.

Streetside Storm Water Planter

Streetscape improvements include new walks, street tree planting, pedestrian lighting and furnishings. The streetscape on Josephine Street will integrate approximately 650 linear feet of water quality detention based on the new City and County of Denver “Green Infrastructure Manual”.
