Aurora is undertaking a stormwater improvement project meant to prevent flood damage in the future. As our cities grow, infrastructure projects like this are required to protect homes and businesses. The area around Sand Creek Park and our Greenway is expected to be affected for about six weeks.

A detour is in place, although this is an active construction site, and the exact placement of possible pathways around the work may shift from time to time. More about the project is available online, and a map of the detour is below:

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.
