“Where thousands have come before…”

Centered in the “heart of the Rockies,” Golden Gate Canyon State Park is one of the most popular State Parks for Denver metro residents.

The Roybal Corporation designed and fabricated the exhibits for the Visitor Center, with interpretive messages ranging from the flora and fauna, to the weather conditions, to recreational opportunities that the Park has to offer.

A variety of exhibit solutions were used to engage the visitors, including: a wetland diorama with interactive panels for visitors to “feel, smell, and hear” the elk; a topographical map that highlights the campgrounds and hiking opportunities, as well as an ecosystem puzzle for visitors to match the animals with their habitat.¬†
