Project Scope:

With funding from the 2018 voter-approved Parks Legacy Fund, Denver Parks & Recreation (DPR) purchased the former Groundcovers Greenhouse site, located in southeast Denver at E. Iliff Avenue and S. Bellaire Street, in 2019. The nearly two-acre site fulfills the goals of DPR's Strategic Acquisition Plan to provide equitable access to park space in historically underserved neighborhoods and create green space within a 10-minute walk for nearby neighbors. A master planning and community engagement process is launching summer 2022, which will lead to the design and construction of a new neighborhood park in future years.
