Confluence Park was created in 1974, after a public- private partnership comprised of the City and County of Denver and the Greenway Foundation formed to reclaim the South Platte River from a dumping ground to a recreational area. Since the official dedication in September of 1975, the area has continued to grow through several additions, the latest of which includes the visioning of the Confluence Park 2013 Master Plan.

ESA was called upon to dewater the site and, once dry, remove the coal tar contamination, taking on the added risk of the environmental impacts of the project.
