The Future of Skyline Park

On Tuesday, September 12th, Downtown Denver Partnership held a community information session to discuss the future for Skyline Park located between 16th and 17th on Arapahoe Street. Renderings of this one-acre strip of land, known as block two, include tree cover for shade, better connections for bikers, a winter ice-skating rink, a summer water play area, and a plaza. This project will transform space for a new era of more accessible and vibrant experiences for Downtown Denver.

A community-based vision was created for all three blocks of Skyline Park to transform it into a public park that is:

  • A welcoming destination that equitably brings people together through a mix of experiences
  • A cultural icon that celebrates the arts, culture, and Denver community
  • A connected place that integrates with its edges and plays an active role in the multi-modal network
  • A resilient oasis that improves ecological health and individual wellness
  • A catalytic spark that contributes to an active, thriving, and vibrant downtown

Denver Parks and Recreation is currently working out the details for this exciting new project. Final design is expected in fall of 2024 with construction beginning in fall in 2025 and completion in 2026.
