What is the 303 ArtWay?

The 303 ArtWay is a proposed concept of an urban neighborhood trail that will be paved for pedestrian and bicycle use to connect throughout Park Hill to various community assets.

 

Where is the 303 ArtWay going to be?

The 303 ArtWay will be in the beautiful Park Hill Neighborhood in Denver.

 

Where will it start and end? 

The first phase of the 303 ArtWay will start at the A Line commuter rail station at 40th and Colorado and will end at Holly Square on 33rd and Holly. The second phase will pick up at Holly Square and continue through North Park Hill all the way to South Park Hill for the third phase that will include destinations such as the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

 

How long will the entire trail be?

All together, the Park Hill phases of the trail will be approximately 5.5 miles long.

 

Who is the 303 ArtWay for? 

The 303 ArtWay is for everyone. You can use it to connect to transit by bike or foot; you can jog, run, or walk on it for fitness; and you can also learn about the neighborhood and its historic landmarks, buildings, and cultural background.

 

Will I be able to rent bikes along the trail? 

We hope that you will be able to rent bikes on the trail. Hopefully, we can explore a partnership with Denver Bike Sharing, the operators of B Cycle, in order to provide bike-share service.

 

Where can I submit art to be included as an installation on the trail?

To be considered to have art included on the trail, stay in tune with our community meetings and potential requests for proposals for artists.

 

Where can I find out more about the art/artists that will be featured on the trail?

The art and artists for the trail have not been chosen yet. If you would like to contribute to the process of choosing art for the trail, attend upcoming community meetings.

 

What are next steps for the 303 ArtWay?

We are engaging with community members and stakeholders to give life to the concept by attending meetings and asking for input about the route, the neighborhood's assets, and the art that will contribute to the trail. Please take a minute to fill out our COMMUNITY SURVEY to give us your input.

 

What is the timeline for the 303 ArtWay?

For the next year, the community will be engaged and concept images will be created. Additionally, some temporary installations will be placed in the community in 2016 to give an idea of what the final trail could look like. After the planning and conceptual processes, we will have a better idea of the cost and likely timeline to complete the project.

 

How do I get involved?

The best way to get involved is to take our community survey HERE. It's only a few questions, and it will let us know if you support the ArtWay concept and also which route you'd like to see the trail take. You can also come to a community meeting, join our mailing list, or keep an eye out for events.

 

Who is leading this project? 

Currently, the Urban Land Conservancy (ULC) is leading the conceptual exploration of this concept. Other nonprofits, community based organizations, and consulting firms have partnered with ULC to assist in the community engagement process, including Northeast Transportation Connections and PlatteForum.
