Programs: Next Generation Partners- We partner with after school groups that work with wow-income, at-risk middle and high school students, and, at no cost to the students or schools, provide the students with a combination of environmental education, community service, and outdoor recreation opportunities.
Neighborhood Partners Environmental Team- Community volunteers meet on the first Saturday of each month to pick-up trash, remove invasive weeds, and perform other necessary trail maintenance.
Sand Creek Greenway is a great escape from the hustle of the city! Sometimes I like to just walk on the greenway and forget all of the stressors in my life. The sights and sounds along the trail and just awesome. Being able to hear the running water of the nearby Sand Creek instantly relaxes me. I would recommend SCRGP to anyone looking for a trail urban bike trail.
