RiNo Boxyard Park Project
UPDATE: Thank you to all that have contributed to our Box Yard Park! We've received over $70,000 in donations so far and just need to raise an additional $15,000. The park should be open in early July and we're are already starting the construction.
BOXYARD PARK is a pop-up park at the intersection of Blake Street and Broadway in the RiNo Art District.
In cooperation with the City of Denver and Denver Parks and Recreation, we are thrilled to announce the creation of BOXYARD PARK, a pop-up park at the intersection of Blake Street and Broadway in the RiNo Art District. Our park will have six - eight months of programming beginning in the Spring of 2018, and we want you to be a part of it. If this pop-up park succeeds as an activated space, weʼll have the opportunity to make it permanent. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to kick off the project!
RiNoʼs story is that of an industrial hub, long forgotten about from an infrastructure perspective even as surrounding areas developed. Today, weʼre making up for lost time by investing (with the City ofDenver) in infrastructure that connects us and provides for theneighborhood, creating spaces to unite us.
Boxyard Park will be open and free to the public. This unique space will be regularly activated through programing and special events and will serve as a gathering place for all. Our goal is to create an urban, energetic gathering place that brings the community together - to work, play, rest, converse and be inspired. A detailed events and activation schedule will bring life to the park, which will also be available for private events on a limited basis. The park will be kid and dog friendly and will feature a climbing wall, dog park, stage and seating areas as well as a regular rotation of food trucks. We are thoughtfully programming the park to maintain a vibrant atmosphere.
BIG PICTURE GOALS:
• Help change, enhance and improve the landscape of the district through activation and community building
• Create a new, much needed of public space for the community
• Compel through activation/success all approving entities to allow for a permanent urban park in the space
Programming will include but not be limited to:
• Concert series & music events
• Artist installations and activations, including classes and events
• Farmerʼs market
• Wellness and health events
• Dog park events
• Other exhibits and special events
• Food and beverage offerings
