The Community Garden in Silt is located at the northern extension of the Cactus Valley Ditch. Deeded to the Town in 1984, the .28-acre community garden is adjacent to Community Center Park. The Town leases plots measuring approximately 10’ x 10’ to interested parties annually for $15. A volunteer in the community serves as a quasi-manager, assigning plots and enforcing maintenance rules on lessees. Contact the Town of Silt for questions about the Community Garden.
The Stoney Ridge Pavilion, Skate Park, and Ball Field are located on a 12.21-acre parcel located east 7th Street south of the Eagles View and Stoney Ridge Developments.
Stoney Ridge Pavilion is the go-to spot for live performances in town and includes a large stage and a green room to the east of the Pavilion stage, which includes a bathroom, small kitchen, and main room. The park also features a skate park, 16-hole disc golf course, and two horseshoe pits. The Stoney Ridge Ballfield is a Little League regulation field with chain link dugouts, batting cages, clay infield, grass outfield, and chain link backstop, and an electronic scoreboard.
The Stoney Ridge Ball Field is also used as a seating and vending area for special events. This location is a picturesque and acoustically suitable area that draws attendees from the state of Colorado and other neighboring states. The primary use of the field, however, is youth baseball and softball, but it is also used for Pee Wee Football and soccer practice when needed.
Scherar Park is a small .27-acre neighborhood park located north of Main Street and the western end of Fawn Court. The park features a wooden shelter, picnic tables, and a covered park bench. The park’s landscaping is mature with sod, trees, and shrubs – which creates a nice and relaxing atmosphere.
Scherar Park is named for a World War II war veteran and Town father, Ray Scherar, who served on the 1950s Board of Trustees that approved the installation of permanent ductile iron water distribution lines throughout much of the downtown, replacing the former wood water lines installed in the early 1920s. Mr. Scherar’s legacy also includes serving as a founding member of the Town’s first volunteer fire department.
This 1.61-acre park serves mainly the Center Townhome residents but is also used by visitors of the adjacent motel. The park includes two climbing structures, see-saws, a digging apparatus, and spring toys. The park also has a picnic table.
