Elmer’s Two Mile Park
Elmer’s Two Mile Park is the greenbelt that stretches between Glenwood and Iris just west of 28th Street. It passes behind the Safeway shopping center and is otherwise bounded by residences.
There’s a thin stretch of grass good for walking dogs or playing catch, a small playground, and a walking/bike path that connects to more residences to the north and connects all the way to Valmont to the south, thanks to completion of the Elmer’s Twomile Creek: Goose Creek to Glenwood Drive construction.
Loris and Associates engineered the Elmer’s Two Mile Creek Iris Ave. underpass. Their page has some interesting information on the underpass, including that “The structure was sized to accommodate the 100-year flood within the structure. The 5-year flood is contained behind the floodwall,” which I take to mean that Murphy’s is a safe place to wait out a 100-year flood with some whiskey.
In the photo above, the first bike path to the left goes to the sidewalk along Iris. The second left goes into the Safeway parking lot near Red Rock Coffee. To the right is Iris Hollow.
