Endless trees? Working water fountains? Public bouncy castles for all?
Now is your chance to give input on what the future of Denver’s public parks should look like for the next five years.
In 2018, voters approved a 0.25% increased sales tax to fund improvements and expansions to Denver’s parks and recreation sites.
Now, the city wants to hear from its residents on what Parks and Recreation’s priorities should be for the next five years. The survey, in English and Spanish, asks people about things like their funding priorities, ways to improve equity across green spaces and how to enhance safety in the parks. You can take the survey here until Oct. 6.
