Cranmer Park Sundial Terrace Closure Notice and Update on Construction Timeline

POSTED » October 30th, 2017

UPDATE: 11/13 (thanks to Denise Sanderson for these updates from the Committee):
The Save Our Sundial Committee of The Park People has received word from Denver’s Department of Parks and Recreation that KRISCHE, the selected contractor for the reconstruction of the Sundial Plaza will be erecting the construction fencing around the entire plaza early this week. Notices that the parking lot is closed were placed at the plaza last week. It is anticipated that construction will begin as soon as possible after the final contract clears City Council – this may be in December, but more likely will be in January 2018.  It will be exciting for construction to begin after our many years of fundraising and the challenges faced with the bidding process. Donations are still welcome! To donate or for additional information please visit

Initial Post: 10/30:
Recently the city received 311 calls/reports regarding the terrace’s deteriorating conditions. After inspection by the city’s operations team, it was determined that the conditions now present public safety concerns and they have placed orange cones in areas where pavers are loose and will be placing fencing around the terrace on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 to close the terrace to public use. Signs will also be placed at the terrace indicating closure and providing information regarding the anticipated construction schedule. Additionally, the city has developed this Cranmer Closure FAQ to help respond to inquiries.

Contracting for the complete reconstruction of the terrace is underway. It is anticipated that construction with begin in early 2018, weather permitting. In the coming weeks, the temporary fencing will be placed with construction fencing by the reconstruction project contractor. The Save Our Sundial Committee of The Park People and DPR thank you for your understanding and continued support for this project.
