Valerian was excited to have our own St. Charles Place Park selected as the site for a volunteer build day by Greater & Greener on Sunday, July 21st. Greater & Greener is the premiere international urban parks conference and explores how urban parks can be designed, developed, programmed, funded, and sustained to meet increasing city demands. This volunteer day highlighted one of Denver’s parks that has seen its fair share of change throughout the years and how successful park partnerships can be formed.
Valerian team members, alongside St. Charles Ambassadors and Denver Parks and Recreation, worked together to lead volunteers as they installed new landscape, filled play pits, and begin the base coat for the forthcoming mural by local artist, Detour. (Check back soon, we’ll be posting updates as this large scale mural comes to life!)
Thank you to all the great volunteers who spent their Sunday morning with us to help make the vision for St. Charles Place Park a reality!
