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.
Work continues on the driving range and the First Tee facility, including final grading, irrigation, topsoil and seeding.
Golf course irrigation is operational where seed and new trees have been installed — the water being used is recycled and provided by Denver Water.
Work on the new clubhouse is now focused on exterior and interior finishes.
Curb and gutter installation and parking lot paving will be completed in May.
The new traffic signal installed on E. 23rd Avenue at the new entrance to the golf course and across from the main entrance to the Denver Zoo is now operational with the exception of the dedicated left-turn signal to direct eastbound traffic into City Park Golf Course. This function will be activated at a later date.
City Park Golf Course is currently closed and will reopen in 2019 after construction is complete and the turf is established.
UPDATE: Search for City Park Golf Course Memorial Friends & Family
We are nearing the final stages of the remodel of City Park Golf course and will be putting the finishing touches on the project over the next few months. Thanks to your responses, we have been able to connect with the family associated with one of the 8 remaining unclaimed memorial benches.
We now need your help to find more information on the following 7 memorials.
We must continue to honor and preserve the legacy of those who contributed to the history of City Park Golf Course. In concert with the Saunders Construction design team, Denver Golf has created an indoor memorial that will be prominently displayed in the new clubhouse.
