Re-Imagine Play


See how Denver has “re-imagined play” at the city’s newest playground at Paco Sanchez Park. This state-of-the-art project goes beyond just play; re-imagine play focuses on multi-generational activities and programming with the goal of inspiring children and families to engage in physical health through active fun for a lifetime.

The highlights of the play area include a 30’ tall “Mic Tower” that allows children and adults the ability to play and challenge themselves together, an accessible bridge that activates play above and below the bridge that connects the entrance of the park to the Mic Tower, the “Gramophone Slide” a concrete hill slide with a gramophone at the top that offers an exciting way to enter the park, a variety of independent play pieces, and stunning views of the Rockies.

After Paco Sanchez, the workshop continues onto the new Adventure Forest at the Denver Children's Museum. This new, outdoor adventure park allows children to swing, scramble, soar and slide. It is built for the most curious adventurer and gives a whole new meaning to "play."

Note: Participants should wear study, flat-soled shoes to partake in "play" at Paco Sanchez Park and the Children's Museum. No loose articles of clothing is also recommended.
