Urban plantings

Green space in a city, whether from planters and/or in-ground plants, make all the difference. Downtown Denver is a good example of what makes urban spaces welcoming, especially in their pedestrian mall and downtown parks.  I was particularly impressed with the Civic Center Park’s space.  The central core was full of food trucks patronized by folks on their lunch breaks, who enjoyed the beautiful day outside of their high-rise office buildings nearby at picnic tables and adjacent steps.

I was glad I didn’t need to return to a cubicle at one of them!
Some blocks are especially nice; these planters and window boxes were well-done.

And I loved these well-designed banners for Bike to Work Day!
