Parks and Recreation

Our Denver Bonds will update our parks and rec centers in neighborhoods across the city and create new facilities in underserved neighborhoods — so we can all have a safe place to connect with our city and our neighbors.


Restoring and improving neighborhood parks
Improvements at 47 neighborhood parks will improve energy efficiency and water conservation, save taxpayer dollars and create more functional facilities by updating playground equipment, picnic areas and walking paths.

Upgrades at recreation centers
Upgrades at 21 recreation centers will keep these spaces functional for kids and adults to exercise and play all year. These projects will improve weight rooms, locker rooms and build two new indoor pools.

New rec centers and parks
A new regional recreation center in the Westwood neighborhood and an innovative playground at Paco Sanchez Park will engage overlooked neighborhoods in West Denver. Plus, two new riverfront parks will continue the decades-long work of reactivating the South Platte River.
