Last weekend I had the opportunity to sit down to a family style dinner of about 100 strangers, in Civic Center Park… at sundown.
IT WAS AWESOME.
It was City Build Denver, and the event was CallaborEAT. It was great. Nicole and I took a Car2Go down to the park, and they had created this magical set up in the middle of the park. rope lights, long tables, hot cocoa and tea stations, a big table of cupcakes.
They brought in speakers from all over the place, including the Civic Center Park Conservancy, a three people Non Profit in charge of programming for the park. They talked about the importance of taking back the park, planning events at the park, etc.
We also heard from people talking about tactical urbanism and more, all about building up and making Denver better.
It was a great time, with great food and meeting new people. I’m really excited to see what CityBuild does and hope i can be more involved.
At the end, we walked home. Because Denver is great and very walkable, which was also a topic, getting around Denver and making the city more walkable, after dark and any other time.
Keep up the good work! Let’s make Denver Awesome!
