Restoration work in Denver's Civic Center Park is in full swing. Crews are cleaning and repairing the park’s two main structures—the Greek Theater and the Voorhies Memorial, both built in the early nineteen-hundreds. It’s a 4.4 million-dollar project, funded by bonds that Denver voters approved back in 2007. But it's really only the start of a much larger transformation. And in a few minutes, we’ll talk about the future of Civic Center with Lindy Eichenbaum Lent, Executive Director of the Civic Center Conservancy. First, Mark Bernstein talks to Ryan Warner. He’s a planner with Denver Parks and Recreation... and he’s overseeing the restoration efforts.
