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.
Excavation and grading of the golf course portion of the project is nearly complete. Excavation for the storm drainage basin (forebay) and water quality channel begins this month. Demolition of the clubhouse is complete with the remaining structures to be removed next.
The Denver Water utilities relocation work is complete in the right of way of 23rd Avenue and York Street. These streets are open with only intermittent, single lane closures for repaving, striping and clean up. The final paving of 24th Avenue is scheduled to be complete in the first week of May. The remaining Denver Water utility relocation work (tie in, test and finalization) including the remaining pipe installation in the golf course is scheduled to be complete in May.
Foundation work on the new clubhouse will begin around the end of May / beginning of June.
Construction of the golf holes on the east side of the project have begun. Work includes fine shaping, irrigation, drainage, tee, bunker and green construction.
City Park Golf Course will be closed through 2018 and will reopen in 2019.
Traffic Impacts: Intermittent lane closures on 23rd Avenue and York Street through the first week of May. Access to the Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and City Park will remain open.
