We are excited to announce the 4th Annual Uptown Block Party on August 10th, 2013 and want to be the first to invite you to join in on the fun and festivities. The Uptown Block Party is a neighborhood event that brings residents, businesses, and community leaders together to enjoy music, entertainment and food. It is a celebration of our wonderful neighborhood. It's fun for the whole family and a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and for local businesses to market their products and services.
The venue for this year’s party is Marion Square at the corner of Park Avenue and Marion Street. Marion Square is one of 12 “squares” along Park Avenue designed by the City of Denver Parks and Recreation Department back in 1874. However, like many of the parks along Park Avenue it has not yet reached its full potential as a great neighborhood amenity. The Uptown on the Hill Neighborhood Association is dedicated to creating a beautiful, useful public park by bringing awareness of these “treasures” to the community and to the beautification of the squares.
