BOXYARD PARK - A POP UP PARK
RiNoʼs story is that of an industrial hub, long forgotten about from an infrastructure perspective even as surrounding areas developed. Today, weʼre making up for lost time by investing (with the City and County of Denver) in infrastructure that connects us and provides for the neighborhood, creating spaces to unite us.
In cooperation with the City and County of Denver and Denver Parks and Recreation, we are thrilled to announce the creation of BOXYARD PARK, a pop-up park at the intersection of Blake Street and Broadway in the RiNo Art District. Our park will have six - eight months of programming beginning in the Spring of 2018, and we want you to be a part of it. If this pop-up park succeeds as an activated space, weʼll have the opportunity to make it permanent.
COMING THIS SUMMER!
