About a dozen Arapahoe Acres homes residents put out the welcome
mat for visitors taking part in the tour to raise money to
eventually create a community garden at Charles Hay Elementary
Tour hours are 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and tickets are $20, with
the proceeds going to the school project.
Hay principal Chris Laney-Barnes said the project organized by
parents will raise money that will go into the Go Green fund for a
project that hopefully will include a community garden.
The tour begins at 1430 E. Bates Ave. There is on-street parking
in the neighborhood. It is a walking tour and residents will be
there to greet the visitors.
Arapahoe Acres is a historic landmark neighborhood made up of a
collection of 124 homes built soon after World War II. Well-known
Denver area native Edward B. Hawkins designed, developed and built
Arapahoe Acres using the unique architectural styling of the 1950s
along with a wide variety of building materials. The neighborhood
includes wide, tree-lined streets.
In recent years, the residents got city permission to install
special wooden street signs that are in keeping with the atmosphere
of the neighborhood.
