City Park Golf Course Redesign

Denver Public Works and Denver Parks & Recreation are beginning work on the redesign of Denver's historic City Park Golf Course to revitalize the 18-hole course, improve and add facilities for golfers of all levels, and integrate course features that can serve to reduce flood risks in nearby neighborhoods. 

The guidelines and requirements for this redesign were produced as part of a lengthy collaborative process with the public, representatives of the neighborhoods around City Park Golf Course and the golf community. The updated design will preserve the best features of the current course and retain the traditional Parkland style look and feel of City Park Golf Course, along with modernized amenities that will be enjoyed by neighbors and golfers alike for generations to come. 

 

 

 

 
 

Project Updates: January 2019

New Traffic Signal to be Installed on E. 23rd Avenue (January 14, 2019 - early March 2019)

A new traffic signal will be installed on E. 23rd Avenue at the new entrance to the golf course and across from the main entrance to the Denver Zoo.  Utilities for the new signal will be installed between January 14 and 25, 2019. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained on E. 23rd Avenue during this two-week period, expect minor delays.  The sidewalk on the south side of E. 23rd Avenue and the entrance to the Denver Zoo will remain open during this time.  Flaggers will be on site to direct traffic.

Once installation of utilities is complete, crews will reconfigure the center traffic island and traffic lanes, and install new curb, gutter, pedestrian ramps, and the traffic signals.  This street work is expected to last throughout the month of February, 2019. Traffic control details for this phase are forthcoming.

Please note that RTD bus stops at the Zoo entrance for both east and west bound buses (Route 32) will be closed for the duration of the construction, but per RTD the other stops along E. 23rd Avenue between Colorado Boulevard and York Street will remain open.

All golf earthwork and the installation of topsoil and irrigation is nearing completion.

Work has begun on the driving range and the First Tee facility to include final grading, irrigation, topsoil and seeding.

Seeding on the west and north sides of the golf course is complete. Seeding on the west and north sides of the golf course is complete with an application of straw for maintaining moisture and seed/soil stabilization. Planted seed will germinate and begin to grow in the spring when ground temperatures rise.

Golf course irrigation is operational where seed and new trees have been installed — the water being used is recycled and provided by Denver Water.

Construction of the new clubhouse continues. Interior steel stud framing and mechanical / electrical rough in is underway. Exterior brick is being installed, and concrete placement is substantially complete at the clubhouse and maintenance facility.  Concrete paving, sidewalks and curbs are being placed. Roofing is being installed and glazing will begin in January.

Grading for parking lot paving is substantially complete with remaining work at the entrance and maintenance facility only.

City Park Golf Course is currently closed and will reopen in 2019 after construction is complete and the turf is established.
