Public Park


Background 

As part of the Central 70 Project, a 4-acre park will be constructed over I-70 and serve as an active, vibrant community asset with opportunities for sporting events, outdoor movies, concerts and farmers markets, among other events. The construction of a park is a defining feature of the lowered highway concept. CDOT partnered with the City and County of Denver and Denver Public Schools on a process to gather community input on the design the park cover’s public spaces, then components of the park were prioritized and selected by the local community. The soccer fields will be a shared-use area with Swansea Elementary School but will be fully open to community use during all non-school hours.
