Building a permanent stage in Hideaway Park
September 22, 2016
Construction has started in downtown Winter Park on a new permanent stage in Hideaway Park.
The project began on August 30 with a completion date set for June 2017.
"This iconic stage design will truly be the capstone of Hideaway Park," said Winter Park Mayor, Jimmy Lahrman.
"Working with the creative design team of Semple Brown and the experienced construction firm of Big Valley has allowed us to significantly enhance the experience for our guests as well as provide another year-round amenity for the local community."
Semple Brown, a performing arts design firm, designed the stage which features a 2,600 square foot handicapped accessible stage. It will replace the park's demountable structure used since 2008 for summer festivals and a variety of events programming.
The stage will evoke the natural imagery of the snow sports and mountain terrain that surround the Town of Winter Park and Fraser Valley, according to the press release from the Town of Winter Park.
"This was such a special project for our design team as we all love Colorado's mountain communities and understand their significance to our state," said Tom Gallagher, AIA, principal of Semple Brown Design.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Town of Winter Park, and to have created a design inspired by their long-term vision for their community and Hideaway Park."
