Denver Neighborhood Map
Stapleton is the former home of Denver’s airport before the construction of Denver International Airport. Once the airport was decommissioned, the area became a large, vibrant neighborhood that reflects New Urbanist principles, mixed-use zoning, and plenty of open space. Stapleton’s 80-acre Central Park is the 3rd largest public park in Denver.
The Stapleton Green Team hosted their first Earth Day Festival on Saturday April 23rd. Though the weather was blustery, people came from around the city to join in the fun.

On Saturday, June 8, 2013, Groundwork Denver will host a volunteer stewardship, recreational and educational event in conjunction with their Lower Bear Creek watershed planning process.
Fair at the Bear is intended to help bring awareness to water quality issues and subsequent impacts on the natural environment. Through education about the natural areas and local wildlife we can help children and adults gain a greater awareness of their daily impact.
Groundwork Denver has a variety of activities planned for the day. The morning will begin with a stewardship event in partnership with Denver Parks & Recreation. Volunteers will remove invasive weeds, pick up trash, paint trees for protection from beavers, and build a walking trail. The afternoon will host educational and recreational events. Educational partners include Trout Unlimited, Denver Natural Areas, Earth Force and Jefferson Conservation District.
Everyone is invited to the Fair from noon to 3:00 in Bear Creek Park (Raleigh Street, just south of Hampden).
