Platte to Park Hill: Integrating Stormwater Infrastructure with Recreational Amenities


Join Executive Director Happy Haynes as we highlight how diverse municipal divisions and design team members collaborate to integrate stormwater infrastructure with high-quality recreational and community assets.

Addressing stormwater management needs in urban environments becomes progressively more challenging as storm and flood events become more severe and unpredictable. By incorporating green infrastructure solutions that also meaningfully increase open space and recreational opportunities for community residents, a winning solution is unfolding in Denver. You will hear from tour leaders who will bring perspectives from diverse city agencies, recreational designers, and public outreach leaders. Participants will learn how to capitalize upon collaborative partnerships to successfully integrate stormwater and water quality infrastructure with open space initiatives to benefit community residents.

Please note: This mobile workshop will visit active construction sites. Please wear closed-toed shoes.
