Council District 2
Councilman Clark was born and raised in Denver and graduated from South High School. For 18 years prior to joining Council to represent District 7, Councilman Clark has worked to connect communities to parks and open spaces and to provide compelling and engaging programming for kids and adults along the South Platte River through The Greenway Foundation’s SPREE (South Platte River Environmental Education) program. Today SPREE serves over 6,000 Denver kids each year and has won more Excellence in Environmental Education awards than any other program in the state.
Councilman Clark has worked with communities adjacent to the South Platte River to improve distressed and underutilized park space and spearheaded the vision for a new five million dollar outdoor learning park right in the heart of District 7 that opened in May of 2015. In 2012, he was appointed by City Councilman Chris Nevitt to serve on Denver’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. He has also been an active leader and board member for the Friends of Levitt Pavilion Denver working to bring an outdoor music venue to District 7’s Ruby Hill Park. The Levitt Pavillion will open in 2017 and will provide 50 free concerts a year to the community.
