Central Platte Valley Trees & Gardens

Denver, Colorado

The Union Station Neighborhood in Denver has become one of Denver’s newest mixed-use neighborhoods with new parks, streetscapes, and the renovated historic Denver Union Station. With a rapidly increasing population, which included more than 1,000 four-legged friends, the public realm faced new challenges.

Livable Cities Studio was asked to study the streetscapes and gardens to develop recommendations for public realm improvements to accommodate people and dogs. The design strategy included the addition of ‘undesignated designated’ places for dogs that are seamlessly incorporated into the environment. Our team’s recommendations included increasing the amount of softscape and plantings in key locations and an engaging communications program that branded the new dog-friendly places as ‘Barlets.’
