Globeville Landing stands between a whole lot of water and the South Platte River. The park is the “outfall” where stormwater draining from northern Denver heads into the river — and that means that it’s due for a major rebuilding.
This evening (June 21), the city will unveil just how that redesign might look.
The potentially final design will be shown off at an open house between 5:30 and 7 p.m. at the Holy Transfiguration of Christ Church at 47th Avenue and Logan Street. Childcare will be available.
What’s this all about, though?
As you may know, the city plans to put nearly $300 million into a system of ponds and drains to control flooding in north Denver. (Here’s our explainer.)
Part of the plan is to replace Globeville Landing’s deep concrete channel with an open, natural drainage. The city plans to revamp the rest of the park along with all that construction.
For a sense of what ideas are in play, check out the draft options presented below. The city showed these off at a public meeting on May 19; keep in mind that the “preferred concept” that is presented Tuesday will be some combination of these ideas.
