A big thank you to all who attended TCLF’s Garden Dialogue at Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus this past Saturday. Guests toured the campus with Mike Yankovich, the museum’s executive director, and Mundus Bishop landscape architect Tina Bishop, while hearing stories about the making of this exciting landscape. TCLF created Garden Dialogues to provide a more in-depth look at designed landscapes, how they came into being, the landscape architects and/or others who designed them, and the patrons of the site.

The North Face, as part of the company's "Walls Are Meant For Climbing" campaign, is working to create more free climbing walls in city parks around the country in neighborhoods where kids face the highest barriers to exploring the outdoors. The first climbing boulder opened this week in Denver’s Montbello Open Space Park. The park is also home to a new outdoor education center, Environmental Learning for Kids (ELK). Mundus Bishop collaborated with ELK, the Trust for Public Land, Denver Parks and Recreation, and local students to develop this learning destination reflective of Colorado’s shortgrass prairie.

Join Tina Bishop, with Mundus Bishop, on Friday, February 16 at 7:30am, for a presentation on Reimagining Denver’s Cheesman Park.
Cheesman Park has offered recreation to Denver area residents since the early 1900s. Renovations within the park have required careful attention to historic preservation of both the park and the remains of its earlier use as a cemetery. Tina Bishop along with others on the design team and Denver Parks & Recreation, will discuss what went into improving the site while maintaining its historical integrity.

A climbing wall coming to a new park in Denver’s Montbello neighborhood is the first in The North Face’s million-dollar “Walls Are Meant for Climbing” campaign. The wall, part of the soon-to-open Montbello Open Space Park, is part of a statewide plan to get more kids outside. The climbing wall, which should be open by summer, is the first of at least four public facilities The North Face hopes to build in underserved urban communities across the country.
