The horseshoe court in City Park, which has been in place since 1952, has seen better times. City Park Alliance, working with Denver Parks and Recreation, identified potential repairs and designs consulting with numerous cities around the country and the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association. The renovations, which will cost approximately $28,000, are being funded via a 1:1 match of donations from the City Park Alliance by Denver Parks and Recreation. Renovations will be completed in 2015, weather permitting.
Sometimes when contemplating comprehensive endeavors for City Park like master planning and historic designation, it’s easy to forget the small details that add to the unique experience of City Park. We’re excited to be able to work with Denver Parks and Recreation to improve this amenity in the park. Projects like these improve the manner in which we more effectively work with Denver Parks and Recreation to effect positive change in the park, and they provide our stakeholders with a tangible success upon which to build for the future.
