YES For Parks and Open Space

Denver voters sent a clear message in the election that we want green and open space!  THANK YOU to all of the volunteers that made this grassroots effort so effective!  Our opposition may have had way more money but we definitely had more heart!

YES for Parks and Open Space is an initiative launched by a group of concerned citizens who want to ensure that the voters in the City and County of Denver have a voice in how the land in our designated parks and open spaces, protected by conservation easements, can be used – starting with the 155 acres former Park Hill Golf Course.

This November, we will be in a David v. Goliath fight to provide additional protection for this land as a developer wants to extinguish the existing conservation easement and build mixed-use development on this pristine land.  We have a vision for this land that was inspired by programs in place and proven successful in other cities.
