I both love and hate to walk this bridge. It connects Commons Park, a park landscaped with native plants along Little Raven Street in Denver’s Central Platte Valley, with Commons Park West, a newish condo development on Platte Street. It provides great views of the South Platte River, but whenever I stand there while someone goes by on foot or on a bike, I shiver at the vibrations. Commons Park offers wide lawns to walk your dog or play frisbee or sunbathe. Native plants fill the edges of the park down to the South Platte River trail.

    Cool photo. The lines remind me of the different competing street layout grids in modern day Denver.

    Thanks, Tracie.
    Yeah, Todd, it does remind me of where downtown streets meet the east-west avenues.
