Tonight, Denver Mountain Parks will be honored as a recipient of Visit Denver’s Tourism Star Award for the historic system’s contributions to Denver tourism. On behalf of the City, Mayor Michael Hancock will accept the award, and Chair W. Bart Berger will receive the award on behalf of the Denver Mountain Parks Foundation.
The award recognizes DMP’s 100 years celebrating the incredible scenery and touring opportunities in the foothills west of Denver. Our 2013 book, Denver Mountain Parks: 100 Years of the Magnificent Dream, played a key role in making this history available to Denver residents and visitors. Historic photos complement scenic photos by John Fielder to provide an excellent guide to the 22 developed parks as the system’s compelling story is reviewed.
