Instagram is where it’s at! Seriously, I can’t tell you how awesome it is to see Parks and Recreation departments utilize this visually engaging platform to engage with their audience. Every day, I see a new way of promoting and sharing content that’s never been done before! We can all stand to learn from each other and share what’s working. I follow a ton of social media accounts by parks and rec depts on Instagram (if you want me to follow you, follow me :)) . Every time I see another unique post, I save it to “my collection” on Instagram. Then, I embed it into here. Check back often, I’ll try to update this post every week or so.
ALSO – This page will load slower than usual – there are many pictures and videos that are loading. Thanks for your patience!
Thanks! Be sure to give ’em a like and a follow so you can see what they’re up to in the future.

Before & After Video of a New Playground
Re-Imagine Play is an innovative approach to #playground design that creates a multi-generational activity environment, giving all park users the opportunity to remain active through play. The Re-Imagine Play design embraces the natural topography of the park, and combines #placemaking and creative #play elements to create a dynamic public space in an area of the city that lacks green space and other amenities. With close proximity to public transit, trails and the #library, the completion of the park improvements build on recent investments in the #neighborhood. “These improvements here at Paco Sanchez Park will play a transformative role in how our kids and families in these neighborhoods connect with the outdoors and recreational activities here in Denver,” @mayorhancock said. “As one of the first #ElevateDenver bond projects to get underway, Phase II will provide even more of these experience to residents here on the westside. When it’s complete, you won’t find another park in #Denver or in the country that will compare to Paco Sanchez Park!” #letsgoplay
Pub in the Park launches this Saturday from 11am to 4pm at Mezes Park and we are proud to be pouring only local bay area microbrews and cider! Check out this video to see which ones will be flowing!

Coffee, kids, and the occasional cocktail- these are some things our 90-year-old Active Adult Club members contributed to their longevity! . Today we celebrated all the Active Adult Club members who have turned, and are turning, 90 in the year of 2018. Wisdom was shared, laughs were had, and memories were made at our annual Nifty 90s Party. . #playaddison #recreation #parksandrec #addisonparkdistrict
