After Party on the Bridge

IMG_3407The Greenway Foundation has been instrumental in transforming the South Platte River through Denver from a devastated wasteland to a nationally recognized recreation jewel. Since 1974, The Greenway Foundation has led efforts to…

  • Reclaim the South Platte River and its tributaries from a virtual cesspool to a place of environmental and recreational pride
  • Construct more than 100 miles of hiking and biking trails
  • Create 20+ parks and natural areas
  • Design and build numerous whitewater boat chutes
  • Vastly improve the health of the South Platte River Watershed and its habitats
  • Provide environmental education to more than 60,000 school children
  • Provide free riverside concerts and cultural events to thousands of residents and visitors
  • Employ more than 100 teenagers in youth employment programs
  • Helped create over $100 million of green improvement to the South Platte River and its tributaries, facilitating over 10 billion in residential and commercial development throughout the Denver Metro area

Part of their ongoing efforts is to educate and build support for the work they are doing. For the last few years it has been talked about how to engage younger professionals in taking part in these great efforts and in ways that are fun and affordable. This year is the inaugural year of what The Greenway Foundation and their partners are calling “The After Party on the Bridge” which is set to be one of the best parties in Denver.
