The Downtown Denver Garden Block is a living landscape in the heart of Downtown, giving visitors, residents and employees a place to gather and enjoy the urban scene. The Garden Block is a joint project between the Downtown Denver Business Improvement District and Denver Botanic Gardens and is generously supported by Bellco Credit Union and the Colorado Garden Foundation. The project creates an entirely new experience on one block of the 16th Street Mall through thematic plantings in the median and on sidewalks, hanging baskets on the many sidewalk cafes, dramatic entry features with unique branding and climbing vines, movable furnishings to enjoy your lunch or coffee with friends, weekly special events and activities, and a robust wi-fi hotspot provided by Forethough.net. In 2014 the Garden Block will feature even more landscape elements and a full round of events. Stay tuned for more info about all the exciting additions this coming summer!
