Candy Cane Lane Celebrates New Directional Signage
Thanks to our awesome volunteers on June 11th, there is now multi-lingual wayfinding signage on the Lakewood Gulch! As you can see from the images below, the installation process was rewarding and you won’t be surprised to hear that the results elicited compliments from trail users.
The Sweetest Ride in the Lakewood Gulch! June’s Candy Cane Lane walk & bike ride was tons of fun. Join us with your kids for the next two rides coming up this month to celebrate the new wayfinding signage in the Lakewood Gulch!
- Saturday the 22nd from 1-3pm with bike rodeo by Bikes Together with free bikes for kids. Rodeo at 1pm on gulch North of Rude Rec center parking lot near Decatur. Sign up here or at bit.ly/gulchride to be one of the first 15 kids ages 3 to 13 years old to get a free bike!
- Friday the 28th from 2-4:30pm with happy hour to follow. Meeting at the Decatur LR station; sign-up here.
The project, West Colfax Connects, builds on our efforts to improve pedestrian mobility to support access to businesses for local residents. With funding from the Colorado Health Foundation, the goal is to connect West Colfax with surrounding neighborhoods, particularly Sun Valley as it undergoes major redevelopment. The project will increase ease of access via Lakewood Gulch through a system of wayfinding signs shown on this map
. The signage offers a safer route between neighborhoods by foot and bike than crossings like the one at 14th and Federal.
