Spring 2023 Park Operations

May's wet weather has impacted seasonal park operations throughout the system with delays in plantings, bathroom and fountain activations, and mowing/weed removal schedules. In addition, trails along waterways continue to be intermittently flooded in low spots due to overflowing tributary creeks and water releases from Chatfield and Cherry Creek Reservoirs. Please use caution and do not enter flooded areas. 

Park road & parking lot closures

Roads and parking lots are closed in various parks throughout the city to provide more space for park visitors to practice physical distancing while walking, jogging, biking, and enjoying other types of recreation. These closures remain at some parks. ADA parking spots are provided along the perimeter of the park where roads have been blocked.
