River Vision: South


River Vision is creating an urban environment that is healthy, habitable, and connected focusing on ecosystem restoration through sustainable natural systems. This workshop focuses on the Southern redevelopment of this project.

Participants will learn about the ecological renovation of the South Platte River, stormwater management tactics, and how to work with partners to finance and construct parks along the river. The highlights of this tour include learning about the River Mile redevelopment (turning an existing amusement park into a mile-long stretch of residential and commercial properties including parks), the land clean up and construction of Shoemaker Plaza, and a look at Johnson Habitat (a nature play area with additional space for families to camp overnight in the urban environment).
