Mestizo-Curtis Park Prescription (ParkRx)
The Mestizo-Curtis ParkRX Program is part of a larger effort to renovate and reconnect residents to this historic neighborhood park, located in Five Points, one of Denver’s most diverse neighborhoods. Project partners have already worked together to renovate the playground and install a new Fitness Zone in the park. Groundwork Denver is encouraging active use of the park for all neighborhood residents and regularly hosts health and fitness activities and programs with a focus on underserved parents, grandparents, and their children/grandchildren. Examples of activities in the park are: AquaZumba, exercise classes, Walk with a Doc, Walk with a Neighbor, yoga, and others. Groundwork Denver would like to thank the following partners for helping bring the ParkRx program to life: The Colorado Health Foundation, The Trust for Public Land, The Friends of Mestizo-Curtis Park, Denver Public Health, Denver Parks and Recreation, the City of Denver’s Department of Environmental Health, and Inner City Health.
