Dog Pond to Begin Offering Gondola Rides in Spring

gondolaStapleton certainly prides itself on being at the forefront in Denver when it comes to art and culture. The community works hard to sustain an urban and cultural environment to match that of the city. Stapleton continues this trend with its latest project, adding gondola rides on the Stapleton dog pond in Central Park.

“We thought this would be a really fun thing for residents,” said Forest City Spokesperson Janelle Ayers. “So we partnered with a company who provides the guides and the boats, and we will be ready to go by mid spring.” Ayers said that they will try to provide live music in the amphitheater at the dog pond as often as possible, but when that is not available, they will play music through the speakers. “The guides will be able to offer riders a brief history of Stapleton as they paddle them around the pond, or they can simply request quiet as they enjoy a glass of wine,” said Ayers.

Ayers said the rides will last about 15 minutes, and they will never have more than 10 boats giving a tour at a time. “Rides will cost $25 per couple, and riders can tip their guide as they wish,” said Ayers. “The dog pond is a great place to enjoy the mountain view in Stapleton, and to look at all the beautiful neighborhoods all around. This is just another reason why Stapleton is such a tremendous community.” Rides will begin in mid-April, provided the weather is warm enough, and will continue through mid-October.
