Denver’s best neighborhood sledding hill is located at 200 N. Fairfax, on the south side of 3rd Avenue between Fairfax and Glencoe Streets and was a brickyard before Robinson Brick donated the land to the city in 1941. Facilities at Robinson Park include: Drinking Fountain, Benches, Picnic Tables, Playground, Restroom, Basketball Court, Football Field, Baseball / Softball Field, and a lovely natural amphitheater for our annual Hilltop Summer Movie Nights series that doubles as a sledding hill in the winter. Here is a map of the park.
We are excited to announce that Robinson Park’s playground and basketball court are currently being redesigned with input from the surrounding community. Accessibility upgrades and improvements to the adjacent picnic facilities and landscape may also be included as the project budget allows.
The online park user survey is open through Oct. 9, 2019—please take a few minutes to tell us about your priorities for Robinson Park and what elements you’d like to see in the playground redesign. Don’t forget to share the survey with your neighbors!
This project is funded through the Elevate Denver Bond Program, approved by voters in 2017 to enhance mobility, safety, and quality of life across Denver. Additional funding provided by Capital Improvement Program (CIP) dollars. Design should be complete by mid-2020, with construction beginning in early 2021. The project has an anticipated completion date in the Fall of 2021.
