FANS of Washington Park
Friends and Neighbors of Washington Park (FANS) invites you to join us for our annual Denver City Park Greenhouse Tour!
Wednesday, May 8th, 2019
Denver Parks are famous for their lovely flower gardens. Did you ever wonder where all those flowers come from?
Now is your chance to tour the greenhouses where the Denver Parks and Recreation Department grows all of their flowers.
The City Park Greenhouse serves as Denver Parks and Recreation's horticultural core by growing and distributing landscape bedding plants, shrubs and other ornamental plants for Denver park districts and other city agencies and facilities. They propagate approximately 250,000 annuals, perennials, shrubs and stock plants. The greenhouse produces flowers for over 500 individual beds comprising roughly 5 acres of park land throughout the city.
Plants grown in the greenhouse are distributed throughout the city on May 15th. We time our tour so everyone can see the plants as mature as possible prior to distribution.

Tour capacity is roughly 40. Carpooling is encouraged. The greenhouse can be a little difficult to find so please allow time. The tour is open to all ages.
