This cool new Promenade is now open in Denver
posted by: admin
The new Arkins Promenade along the South Platte River is finally open! In the form of a linear park, the space includes a pedestrian corridor with walking and bicycle access, river theater, gathering and play areas, an elevated walkway along the river, public art, and overlooks with seating areas.
The project saw Denver Parks and Recreation transform Arkins Court, an industrial backroad that ran along the river from 35th to 38th Avenue, into Arkins Promenade. The promenade is part of a mile-long riverfront pedestrian corridor that will run between 29th and 38th streets.
Creating open space for recreation and leisure, the promenade offers visual and physical access to natural resources and trails along the river, Denver Parks and Recreation said.
The city’s parks and recreation landscaped the space with shade trees, native grasses, and planters to filter stormwater management that improves the water quality in the South Platte River.
