Normally, we aim to do our Denver Union Station walking tours the first and third Saturday of the month. However, I’ll be out of town the first Saturday in October. So, let’s take advantage of a rare fifth Saturday of the month and do a tour this Saturday, September 29, 2012. Following that, our next tour will be the third Saturday in October on October 20, 2012.
Please join me to learn all about the incredible activity that’s happening at and around the historic station. On the tour, we’ll cover the transit infrastructure, the three major public spaces, the restoration of the historic station, and the numerous private-sector mixed-use developments planned or under construction in the area.
Here’s how it works: Head on down to the LoDo side of the historic station at about 9:50 AM—meet at the corner of 17th and Wynkoop. Whoever shows up, that will be our tour group. We’ll start promptly at 10:00 AM and conclude around 11:15 AM at the light rail station by the Millennium Bridge. The suggested donation for the tour is $10 per person and all proceeds go to the non-profit Student Chapter of the American Planning Association at the University of Colorado Denver, but you are absolutely more than welcome to take the tour whether you make a donation or not.
Please join me this Saturday for a fun and informative walk around Denver Union Station… and don’t forget your camera!
