Levitt Pavilion Denver is being heralded as the centerpiece to Ruby Hill Park’s revitalization, an expansive yet underused 83-acre park located in Southwest Denver. Upon opening in 2017, Levitt Denver is poised to become a place for all Denverites to come together on lawn chairs and blankets for free music under the stars.
While boasting the city’s highest elevation with breathtaking views of the downtown skyline, Ruby Hill Park nevertheless has a history of being underused and was a target for vandalism, save for the winter months when its steep hills become popular for sledding and skiing.
In 2006, the City completed a Master Plan to transform Ruby Hill Park into a year-round, citywide destination. Among many new amenities and attractions including playgrounds, interactive fountains/splash areas, extended walking trails and a new picnic pavilion, the Master Plan called for an outdoor performance space in the park’s natural bowl. Having heard about the success of the Levitt program in other cities, the City of Denver reached out to Levitt and a partnership was formed. Friends of Levitt Pavilion Denver is currently undergoing its capital campaign, with construction of the pavilion, designed by studiotrope Design Collective, now underway.
