The Outdoor Downtown Plan

Read the plan for The Outdoor Downtown (PDF)

The Outdoor Downtown is a 20-year master plan to provide the City of Denver with a visionary and actionable list of policies, programs, and projects that will make Downtown's parks and public spaces world-class destinations.


Current Downtown Projects

Project Scope

The Skyline Park Improvements project is underway! Denver’s Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), in consultation with the Elevate Denver Bond Program and local stakeholders, is leading an effort to assess, reimagine and transform Skyline Park to once again become an iconic and vibrant civic park at the heart of downtown Denver. This project will create a new vision for all three blocks of Skyline Park and develop a final design for construction of phase one improvements that are funded by the Elevate Denver Bond Program. In alignment with the Outdoor Downtown Plan, this plan will be driven by the foundational goals of a Social, Recreational, Connected, Cultural and Sustainable downtown.

Funding & Timeline

Project visioning and construction of phase one are being funded by the Elevate Denver Bond Program for a total of $2.5 million. Phase one design should be complete by summer 2021, with construction beginning in early 2022. Project visioning for the entire park should be complete by the end of 2020. Final design of phase one improvements is targeted for July 2021, with construction of phase one improvements occurring throughout 2022.
