WATERSHED: South Platte River Watershed

Heron Pond Regional Open Space Master Plan

Denver Parks and Recreation and the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative are leading an effort with the surrounding communities to re-envision approximately 80 acres of city property and existing open space around Heron Pond to serve as a regional and local amenity. This community-driven effort will develop a plan for future recreation amenities and provide the opportunity for residents to engage with nature along the river in the Globeville and Elyria/Swansea neighborhoods. The plan aims to include wildlife habitat, connections to the South Platte River corridor and surrounding neighborhoods, and connections between several other adjacent city-owned open spaces.
