Trail Reopens! (and a temporary closure)

May 27, 2020
The long awaited pond project west of Central Park Blvd is completed late May 2020

After almost a year, the Quebec to Central Park Blvd Bridge segment of our Greenway in Denver reopened on May 22, and immediately trail users walked, bicycled and ran to the area to see the water control pond and new trail surfaces in that section.

The project was approved seven years ago. It will take some time before landscaping work is completed, so more improvements are coming. Until new plants can take hold, we ask everyone to keep to the designated trail surfaces.

Another very brief closure: 

Dahlia trailhead in Commerce City

Today, we received notice from Commerce City that two paved sections of the Greenway need to be replaced, forcing a closure of the trail around the Dahlia trailhead, Thursday, May 28 through midday Friday, May 29. The closures will take place approximately 1 mile east of the Dahlia trailhead, and approximately 50 yards west of the Dahlia trailhead parking lot. As there is not enough clearance in those areas, an alternate route is not possible, and the trail will be closed during this time. We fully expect the trail to reopen as planned by midday, Friday, May 29.

Take Action!

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.
