As promised, our next Denver Union Station walking tour is this Saturday, July 21, 2012 at 10:00 AM.

This is going to be a good one, I promise. Why? First, there’s a ton of activity going on at Union Station these days. Public spaces, transit infrastructure, underground structures, rebuilt roadways, office buildings, apartment towers… it’s a cornucopia of construction! What’s not to love?!

Next, it’s a great way to start your weekend with a quick, informative Downtown walkabout and a vivid reminder of why you love this city. Plus, if you’re willing, you can also contribute to a good cause. A 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. However, you are absolutely more than welcome to join us whether you make a donation or not.

Finally, for this tour only, we have planned to have a special guest drop by at a certain point on the tour. This person is Denver’s most notable historic preservationist and someone who has an intimate knowledge of Denver Union Station. Join us this Saturday to get the inside scoop on the historic station’s planned transformation from… well, you’re just going to have to show up on Saturday to find out.

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 new light rail station by the Millennium Bridge.

See you Saturday morning… and don’t forget your camera!
