Party Parks to be "Activated"

Denver Parks and Recreation is going ahead with its plan to allow promoters to lease portions of various parks (conveniently renamed "Festival Parks") for fenced-off admission only activities, most of which will include the sale of alcohol. Some contend that any leasing of parks is illegal, as it is specifically prohibited in the City Charter. Note that some areas will be slated for as many as 7500 participants. Click here for many additional posts on this subject on this blog, and here (pdf) for the Parks and Rec instruction manual.
