PLEASE JOIN THE NEIGHBORS OF PARK HILL TO DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF OUR PARK

We the neighbors of Park Hill have been promised a park by the city of Denver and its Parks Dept. in one of two locations in the 2800 block of Fairfax. In Whichever location the park goes, the neighbors of Park Hill, especially the neighbors who live in close proximity to the park, should have a say in the design and function of our park. We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with our City Council and Denver Parks and Recreation.

Please join your neighbors in a series of meetings to help determine what features our park should have and the function our park should serve. Please come to the meeting, and let everyone know what will make our park, a park for our community. We’ve invited Council Rep Herndon and Denver Parks and Recreation to join us.

WHEN: SUNDAY NOV Dec 3rd, 2:30pm-4:00pm and Sunday, Dec 17th, 1:30pm-2:30pm

WHERE: GPHC OFFICE, 2823 FAIRFAX STREET

The parade route runs along 23rd Avenue, from Dexter St. to Krameria St. The website for the Park Hill 4th of July Parade is parkhillparade.com.

Park Hill Home Tour & Street Fair – September 10, 2017

Every September, Greater Park Hill Community, Inc., along with neighbors, businesses and community organizations, hold the annual Park Hill Home Tour & Street Fair. This tradition began in 1978 when a local Realtor organized a tour of Park Hill homes to showcase the rich history and diverse architecture of the neighborhood. Over the years, the Home Tour & Street Fair has grown and evolved into a community event that, in addition to featuring beautiful homes and historic landmarks, includes a free daylong street fair on Forest Parkway in the heart of the neighborhood. The Home Tour & Street Fair is GPHC’s largest fundraiser of the year, and helps support neighborhood safety programs, food assistance programs and community events. The website for the Home Tour & Street Fair is parkhillhometour.org.
