Volunteers needed May 16th

Help make northwest Denver more walkable!


Great Paths: The Boulevard at Jefferson Park is a WalkDenver project aimed at promoting neighborhood amenities and walking in northwest Denver through pedestrian improvements. Last fall, community members came together to identify the top destinations for walking in the neighborhood, a priority path that links these destinations, and low-cost improvements that would enhance the priority path. Now we need volunteers to help install some of the improvements: pedestrian wayfinding signs that indicate how long it takes (in minutes) to walk to top destinations in the neighborhood, as well as stencils on the sidewalk marking the priority path.

WinningBeeInstallation of the signs and stencils will take about an hour, and will be followed immediately by a community celebration called “Bee JP” that will include Horseshoe Market artisan vendors, a seedling sale, live music, food vendors, walking tours, and walk-to-eat specials at local restaurants. Volunteers will receive t-shirts with the Bee JP bumblebee design that community members selected to grace the pedestrian wayfinding signs and stencils.

Date: Saturday, May 16th
Location: 25th and Eliot
Volunteer shift: 9 am – 10 am
Community celebration: 10 am – 2 pm
