Mission Statement

The mission of the Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership is,to develop and manage a nearly 14-mile public greenway and trail along Sand Creek that links the High Line Canal in Aurora with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City and runs through Stapleton in Denver, Colorado.

Description

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is not only an organization but an amenity serving the northern metropolitan area and providing an amenity to historically underserved populations. Broad goals include:

  • Develop the greenway as a regional resource (not simply trail segments that connect)
  • Develop a strong and vibrant user base in the northern metro area
  • Obtain sufficient funding to complete the full vision for the Greenway, which includes: multi-use, off-street urban trail (including equestrian use); a signature park in each city; an interpretive system acquainting users with the history and geography of the corridor; trailheads and other access points that serve a local and regional population; connections to neighborhoods via an off-street trail system; protectionfor existing wildlife corridors and important native plants and ecosystems; programs to understand and value the fragile ecosystem of the corridor, and; a transportation corridor for commuters using non-motorized transport.

This is a very well-run organization that uses the time of volunteers extremely efficiently. The projects are very needed to help improve the environment and health for many people. Volunteers are treated well and their work is strongly appreciated.
