For over a century, visitors and residents of Denver have enjoyed playing and relaxing in City Park. In times of turmoil, City Park has been a respite to escape when we feel overwhelmed. This holds true even as the City navigates the Coronavirus outbreak.
City Park has remained safe and accessible to everyone. People in the park have been honoring safe distancing and wearing nose and mouth coverings. We ask you to please continue these practices.
Sadly, many things that had been planned in the Park for Spring and Summer have been put on hold. Our traditional Ice Cream Social and the installation of the Color Fields art project by the lily ponds have been postponed. Keep coming back to cityparkalliance.org for dates/times if we are able to secure new dates this Summer.
City Park Alliance is a nonprofit organization that works with Denver Parks and Recreation to “protect and improve” our beloved City Park.

City Park Alliance (CPA) is participating in a collaborative public art installation in the Lily Pond. Local artists Sarah and Josh Palmeri will activate the space through a colorful, site-specific installation of roughly 7,000 painted gardening stakes in the seedbeds of the drained pond. The six uniquely shaped seedbeds will transform into abstract forms of lenticular colors, bringing attention to this underutilized area of the City Park.
Sponsored by City Park Friends and Neighbors, supporters in addition to CPA include Denver Arts and Venues, Denver Parks and Recreation, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and the Denver ZOO.

Denver Parks and Recreation is working with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science to create “nature play” space in City Park
The recently completed City Park Master Plan calls for the replacement of the small playground on the east side of City Park, just south of the Museum. Denver Parks and Recreation announced a partnership with DMNS to redevelop the small playground area.
DMNS has launched a Nature Play survey to gather input to help inform the concept and design of natural play spaces in City Park. What makes nature, science and play meaningful to you?
