Summer Starts Now – Park on the Plaza Offers Passengers an Unexpected Experience

Home

DENVER – May 23, 2019 – As summer kicks off, so will the Summer@DEN series! The series includes events on the Denver International Airport (DEN) open-air plaza, between the Jeppesen Terminal and the Westin Hotel.

From May 24-Sept. 2, the plaza will transform into a park that will give travelers and community members a refreshing, unexpected airport experience. The park will include gardens featuring native Colorado trees and plants and lounge seating.

Fun passenger events will be hosted on the park during weekly Wellness Wednesdays and Fly Away Fridays. Wednesdays, from 11:30-12:30 p.m., classes ranging from yoga to Tai Chi will be available for passengers. On Fridays, travels can enjoy educational, cultural, and family-friendly activities and performances during the lunch hour.

Event information is available at FlyDenver.com/events

Passengers visiting DEN and community members alike are encouraged to stop by and enjoy free park activities. Share photos of the Park on the Plaza by using the hashtag #DENEvents.

The plaza is located pre-security, is open to the public and is accessible just steps from the University of Colorado A Line station at DEN, or a short walk from the airport parking garages ($4/hour in garage parking, $5/short term parking).

MEDIA are welcome to join in on the Park on the Plaza fun – photos are available here. The plaza is also a great spot for a weather report!
