Denver Parks and Recreation Announces Public Event Policy

DENVER — Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) published a new Public Event Policy and announced the 2017 permit application process that will begin on November 1. 

Public Event Policy

The Public Event Policy describes the rules and regulations under which outdoor public events may be scheduled and held within Denver parks.  This new policy supports public events in Denver parks while both safeguarding the parks and rights of residents to access and use the parks. 

DPR leaders worked closely with the community to provide input on current policies and procedures as well as recommend new ones.  The policy was defined through the assistance of a stakeholder committee comprised of representatives from various neighborhoods and organizations as well as public community meetings.  Representatives included event organizers, residents from City Park, Washington Park, Cheesman Park, Stapleton, Park and Recreation Advisory Board Members, and city council staff.

Parks And Recreation At Denver

Denver, back at its founding date in 1858, was just an ordinary county situated on a rolling grassy plain filled with cottonwoods and willow trees. But on the year 2008, a hundred years and fifty later, the city-county of Denver has more than two hundred parks of all themes and sizes. Denver also has twenty nine recreation centers that offer places of leisure and enjoyment for its residents and tourists alike.

A lot of parks in Denver were acquired mostly from private estates between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries. The acquisition of unused private lands was a part of the City Beautiful Movement, which aimed to expand and beautify the parks in Denver. Reinhard Schuetze became Denvers first landscape architect and designed Cheesman Park, City Park, and Washington Park. Along with his contemporaries, Schuetze designed the entire Civic Center Park, which became the center of the civic life in Denver.

Furthermore, the city-county government of Denver has also acquired land for mountain parks since the early 1900s. As years passed by, Denver has about fourteen thousand acres of mountain parks. One of these is Red Rocks Park, which is popular for breathtaking sceneries and the unique Red Rock Amphitheatre.

Denver has also acquired the hill where Winter Park Resort is situated. City parks and recreation centers are important places for both the residents of Denver and tourists. Denver Colorado parks and recreation centers are growing and under development, alongside with new parks to be raised on the Platte River.

All of Denver Colorado parks and recreation areas serve as important places for gathering, reunion, or making acquaintances between the residents and the tourists. These parks also turned the entire Denver from being a once-dry plain into a lush and green place.

Starting in the year 1974, the city-county government and other immediate jurisdictions have reinstated and rehabilitated some aging but still promising Denver Colorado parks and recreation centers, such as area in the urban South Platte River, where hikers and cyclists can ride their contraptions for recreation. Despite urbanization, Denver thrives to be a green place for everyones enjoyment.
