Josephine – Interim Dog Park and Community Garden

Denver, Colorado

This project is located at 1500 Josephine before the Carla Madison Recreation Center was constructed.

A 2007 bond issue set aside money to purchase an abandoned commercial building with associated parking lots and game courts the build at 1500 Josephine, in anticipation of building a new recreation center there. StudioCPG was contracted by the City and County of Denver to participate in planning for site demolition and the temporary installation of a Dog Park and Community Gardens on the site as the city continued to raise funds for design and construction of the Recreation Center.

Design by Subtraction

To speed the process Parks & Gardens utilized a “Design by Subtraction” approach locating the dogpark on the old building site and retaining a majority of the existing asphalt for parking and site circulation.

Design for the community garden is currently in process in coordination with Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) and the administration at Denver’s East High School.

StudioCPG facilitated a Public Meeting during the Preliminary Design Phase so that nearby residents could review and comment on proposed park improvements.
