Revitalizing Our River
If it Takes a Village to Raise a Child – It Takes a City to Save a River!
Over the last 15 years, The Greenway Foundation has partnered with numerous public, private, philanthropic, and political partners to realize the following projects. Each project has, to one extent or another, the four benefit goals of any and all river projects – environmental, recreational, water quality, and flood control. Enjoy learning about these varied, but all exciting, efforts to further return a river to all of its people.
Greenway’s Projects Transform Our Community
I have worked hand-in-hand with the Greenway Foundation for over 15 years to advocate, dream, vision, plan, design and construct improvements to the South Platte River in Denver. We didn’t have two nickels to rub together when we began, but we had the passion, history and expertise of this non-profit that never takes “no” for an answer and now we have invested nearly $100 million in river improvements and we were just awarded $350 million in federal funding to complete the restoration of Denver’s greatest natural resource. Amazing! Thank you Greenway Foundation.
