River Park at Las Colonias: 2021 Great Place in Colorado Public Space

The River Park at Las Colonias includes a lengthy and accessible water channel, two standing wave water features, and beach and wading areas. The feature was built with the entire community in mind and has different meanings for all users of the park. The space bridges the gap between the community and the Colorado River.


The 39th Avenue Greenway: 2021 Great Place in Colorado-Public Space

After numerous instances of severe flooding in northeast Denver, in 2015 the City and County of Denver began a new stormwater infrastructure initiative to address flood protection in five neighborhoods in Denver. The City adopted a multi-layered approach to the Platte to Park Hill Stormwater Systems Program that provides flood protection to over 5,000 homes and strengthens multimodal connections and increases recreation in historically disconnected and underserved neighborhoods.
