Neighborhood Snapshots:

Ruby Hill Rail Park – Denver Goes Slopestyle

By Brooke Keith

Denver is 6,269 miles from Sochi, where the 2014 Winter Olympics will soon be coming to a close, but did you know there’s a place within Denver’s city limits to catch live slopestyle snowboarding and skiing, and even luge action? So, maybe I substituted luge for sledding but you get the picture. The Ruby Hill Rail Yard and the hills that surround it are the place to be when the snow falls or in this case – when the snow is made.

The Ruby Hill Rail Yard opened in 2007 and was the only free urban-based terrain park in the country at the time. Located at Ruby Hill Park, which is situated between W. Florida Avenue and W. Jewell

Dwell Home Life - Want to Plant a Tree?

By Merlin Parker

Wanting to plant a tree?  All residents of Denver are eligible for low-cost trees as long as you live in the city limits.  The annual opportunity is sponsored by The Park Peoples "Denver Digs Trees" program.

8 Ways to Make Your Home More Pet-Friendly

By Brooke Keith

Sometimes I wish it really would rain cats and dogs. Don’t you? If you have one (or two) you know exactly what I’m talking about. You may even have a “Home is Where the Dog is” magnet on your fridge or possibly a needle point pillow with Erma Bombeck’s words “Cats invented self-esteem” on your couch, but really how pet-friendly is your home? We’ve put together a quick list that will help make your home safer, cleaner, and simply more enjoyable for you and your pets.
