Baseline is designed as a smart, productive, and purposeful ecosystem. With acres of green infrastructure, thoughtfully balancing parks and natural open spaces with creative and urban built places, our amenities play a vital and deliberate role in linking urban and nature together.


We will have 172 acres of green space including walkable, bikeable mixed-use trails within Baseline that will connect seamlessly to neighboring trails for rides that can extend as far as Denver, Boulder, and beyond.


When it comes to parks, have your pick. West Village’s signature park, The Basin, offers a lush green lawn for kicking a soccer ball, sharing a picnic, or joining community events, like Honey Bee Day (in August). If your kiddos need to burn off some energy, visit Checker Square’s wooden play structures. Coming in 2023, The East Village will have The Backyard—the ultimate backyard with lawn, shaded gathering space, leisure swings (for kids of all ages!), and a sculpture garden—and The Little Green will have hammocks, swings, a human-sized nest of logs for climbing, and a pollinator garden.

Looking ahead, The Parklands will be the centerpiece of Baseline’s green infrastructure. Oriented around Preble Creek, this multi-use park will have a mix of fun, outdoor spaces for gathering, walking, healing, learning, and more.

Butterfly Pavilion (coming 2025)

An 80,000-square-foot, state-of the-art invertebrate zoo and research center is planned for Baseline’s Center Street. The Butterfly Pavilion‘s new $50 million home will serve as a global hub for invertebrate knowledge, inspiration, and connection. It is also planned to include the Center for Invertebrate Research and Conservation (CIRC), the only stand-alone Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited facility in the world dedicated to invertebrates.
