Where were you August 30, 1996?
60,000 people ventured out that day to celebrate the opening of Colorado’s largest enclosed regional shopping center and only retail resort
Park Meadows Retail Resort opened in August 1996 changing more than just the landscape of South Denver. The shopping center changed enclosed regional shopping venues across the United States. With a 66 foot fire- place, majestic custom
mural to the words of “America the Beautiful,” 16 custom pieces of art by Colorado artists and award-winning architecture that hosted the most unique and comprehensive variety of stores and restaurants of its time.
25 years later Park Meadows is joined by many changes in the entire Denver South region such as the 3 million square feet of additional retail in Centennial, Lone Tree and Greenwood Village adjacent to Park Meadows. Park Meadows brought the first and flagship Nordstrom to Colorado as well as in the first year 37 retailers that had not had a store in the Denver Metropolitan area.
Park Meadows from the first day gave back to the community and has contributed more than $500,000 to community events, charities, and initiatives. Park Meadows will celebrate the entire year bringing more to the communities we serve.
Park Meadows cares about our beautiful state of Colorado and its parks, trees and forests. As a salute to our re-forest Colorado program, we will be planting 25 new trees around Park Meadows and donating $2,500 to reforest the fire-stricken areas.
