Connected to Everything That Matters

And It's Happening Now

The Middle of It All

The River Mile is a new gateway to the city, coming to life on the site of the Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park. It’s a front row seat to the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Seamlessly connected to the Central Business District and major destinations such as Ball Arena and Union Station. Surrounded by, and soon to be infused with, even more culture and entertainment. And it’s the beginning of a fundamental realignment of downtown Denver.

Explore the Locale


The River Mile is bringing Denver back to the South Platte. With a full mile of reclaimed riverfront. With dozens of acres of new parks and restored wildlife habitat. And with a river made whole again — returned to its original depth and character. Reconnecting the city to the Colorado outdoors.

Take me to the River

“The historic South Platte River is a part of the West. It courses right through the center of the city, gives us an identification, and defines the opportunity for a project like The River Mile.”
