Burns Park Master Plan

In 2015, Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) and Denver Arts & Venues developed a framework and strategy for park improvements and for the protection, rehabilitation and advancement of Denver public art within the park.  Several Hilltop residents have been involved in the stakeholders meetings developing a plan for the Park.  Read the Burn Park Master Plan and this Westword article about the sculptures in this park.

Save the Sundial at Cranmer Park

Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) launched an innovative public-private partnership with the Save Our Sundial Project and The Park People to spearhead the restoration of Sundial Plaza at Cranmer Park. The restoration project will encompass reconstructing the terrazzo panorama, repairing the sundial, and rebuilding the foundation of the plaza. Renovation of this important site is necessary to restore the architectural significance and aesthetic beauty of the plaza. Costs for this project are estimated to be $1.8 million.

In April of 2017, the Save Our Sundial Project announced they had reached their goal and matched funding from the City with the help of more than 700 households and dozens of foundations and businesses who value this special site and appreciate the vital role that Denver’s parks, shared spaces, and special places play in all our lives.

The Save Our Sundial Project is still accepting gifts to the Save Our Sundial Fund. Gifts already received in excess of what’s needed for the reconstruction as well as additional donations will be placed in an endowment account to fund ongoing preservation of the sundial, mosaic mountain panorama, and plaza.
