Sustainability park: A new twist on the 'park' paradigm

CRES (the Colorado Renewable Energy Society) has formed partnerships with the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) and Urban Farmers Collaborative to develop a 2.5 acre site in east Denver, into a cutting-edge sustainability park. What’s a sustainability park? In this case, it’s a showcase of many different renewable energy and sustainability technologies. From solar panels to wind mills, landscaping materials to urban gardening, green building techniques to alternative transportation, this park will be a demonstration mecca.The park itself will have solar-powered street lights, electric-car charging stations, a shared bicycle station and sustainable rain-water handling. In addition, there will be a community garden, demonstration sites for many different solar technologies, an amphitheater for education, entertainment and much more.
