On Wednesday, Sept. 8 at the City Park Pavilion at 6 pm, Julie Lehman, Manager of the Greenhouse and Horticulture program for the City of Denver and the Citywide Median Renovation team, and Adam Smith, Superintendent of the East District that includes City Park will present their visions for City Park.

Julie will speak about the history of horticulture in Colorado and Denver, and also the philosophy behind her design of flowerbeds, green infrastructure and the medians she oversees throughout Denver. Julie will also talk about developing the City Park Greenhouses into horticultural hubs that promote collaboration between City Park staff and other horticultural institutions. Julie is working to expand partnerships with organizations such as Plant Select, CSU Extension and Denver Botanic Gardens.

Adam will describe City Park’s current irrigation system and discuss the new irrigation plan (as recommended in the 2018 City Park Master Plan Update) that is in the works sometime in the future.

Wednesday, Sept. 8 at the Pavilion at 6 pm is the time and place for this unique program. Bring a snack and a beverage as you get to know Julie and Adam and drink in the beauty of City Park. A question and answer period will follow the presentations. We look forward to seeing you there.
