Pop-up park coming to Ballpark neighborhood; residents cheer and jeer
DENVER -- The Ballpark neighborhood is overrun with apartments, parking lots and concrete. But the city of Denver is trying to change that -- sort of. It plans to install a pop-up park next month on 21st Street between Larimer and Lawrence streets. It will be called The Square on 21st. The temporary park will be just one block starting June 15 and lasting two months. Many neighbors say it could be a little slice of open space they long for in the middle of the city.
