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: August 2018

Mass excavation and grading of golf course portion of the project is substantially complete with the exception of work in and around the forebay. The remaining, minor excavation work will conclude by the end of August. Demolition of the existing 102-inch storm sewer has begun and bypass pumping is underway in order to complete the drainage structures throughout the course. Removal of the 102” storm line will complete in August. Water is flowing through a partial section of the water quality channel starting early August.

The Denver Water utilities relocation work is complete in the right of way of 23rd Avenue and York Street; however, final completion and paving work has been re-scheduled for August 7 – 12. Details of this paving work is as follows:

York Street

  • Three lanes closed, with only one northbound lane open, from 23rd Avenue to 26th Avenue from 8/7 at 8:30 a.m. to 8/10 at 8:30 a.m.
  • Full closure from 23rd Avenue to 26th Avenue from 8/10 at 8:30 a.m. to 8/12 at 5:00 p.m.

23rd Avenue

  • Full closure of 23rd Avenue between Steele and York Streets from 8/10 at 8:30 a.m. to 8/12 at 5:00 p.m.

The majority of the construction work will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., with some night work as necessary. Please note that this schedule may change due to bad weather or other unexpected conditions.

Construction of the new clubhouse continues. Seeding has started on the east side of the golf course and is being irrigated with the new irrigation system. The water used is recycled and provided by Denver Water.

Fine shaping, golf features and bunker construction has started on the middle and west side of the golf course.

City Park Golf Course will be closed through 2018 and will reopen in 2019.

Traffic Impacts: Intermittent lane closures on York Street and 23rd and 26th Avenues will take place in July and August. Access to the Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and City Park will remain open.
