Park Designation Policy (Draft)

The Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) public/community outreach policy is intended to create standards that the DPR administration can follow to ensure that public input and the dissemination of information is a top priority. The standards that make up the framework of this policy are intended to be flexible. The overall goal in creating this policy is to develop a better-informed public, encourage participation and to work collaboratively with our constituents to hear their ideas and collect their feedback.

The Plan identifies core services, points out duplication in services, recommends service provision strategies, and recommends resource allocation and pricing strategies. It enhances partnerships and helps meet the future needs of Denver residents, and those who work in and visit the community.
