Work Alongside the Arkansas Riverwalk

The Recreation District received a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant for a team from the Mile High Youth Corps to remove dead trees in John Griffin Regional Park.  They will be removing trees Sept. 26th through Oct. 21st., working Mondays through Thursdays.  Expect closures of the Middle Trail during this time.  The trails along the river and the bluff will remain open.  Please pay attention to posted signage.  We appreciate your cooperation while work is being done to care for the park.
