Building a new Greenway map with your ideas

February 2, 2018

An old map from our files!

One of our goals for 2018 is to create a new Sand Creek Greenway map to distribute to the public, and we want YOUR input and ideas! Our staff and volunteers are holding four MAP Input PARTIES to invite public participation.

The parties are:
Tuesday, January 9, at CUBA CUBA in the Northfield neighborhood of Denver (4:30-7)
Monday, January 29, at Panera in Aurora (4-8)
Tuesday, February 20, at Eagle Pointe Recreation Center in Commerce City (4:30-7:30)
and one more date in Denver, to be scheduled

The initial input we’ve received indicates you want ideas of things to see and do on the Greenway (including activities for kids and families), better directions on how to get to the trail and trail heads, places near the trail where you can get food and drink, and images of wildlife that can be seen and heard from the trail!

Thanks to generous seed funding from Suncor, we’ll be printing and distributing 20,000 copies of the map later in the year; and we’ll look to friends and advertisers to cover the rest of the costs. Most of all, we want to create a map YOU’LL use and will help you discover the great places along our Greenway.

Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership

About the Greenway

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is a jewel in the necklace of trails that has made Denver a national model for linked trail systems.

This 14-mile public greenway connects the High Line Canal in Aurora, Colorado with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City. Along the way, it passes through northeast Denver and the new Stapleton community.

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is open every day from dawn until dusk. Runners, walkers, nature viewers, horseback riders, and leashed dogs are encouraged to enjoy the trail. We invite you to become acquainted with our wilderness in the city.
