In an ongoing effort to address the visitation pressure on our park system, Jefferson County Open Space is currently updating the access and trailheads component of the South Table Mountain Park Plan. This plan proposes a new main trailhead at Denver West and improvements to access points on Golden Hills Road and Rimrock Drive. As part of the ongoing public engagement about these potential improvements, Jefferson County Open Space held a stakeholder listening tour this spring and a virtual community meeting on April 8. The community meeting kicked off a 30-day public comment period to solicit feedback on proposed plans.
For the next step in these efforts, Jefferson County Open Space and the City of Golden will be co-hosting a virtual community meeting on June 22 at 6 p.m. to discuss design alternatives for the access points at the Rimrock Drive and Golden Hills Road locations. Additionally the meeting will present and seek feedback on alternatives for pedestrian and multimodal improvements to Rimrock Drive. Please register online in advance for the meeting.

There will be plenty of food for purchase for all appetites, and beer provided by Golden City Brewery and Coors to wash it all down. Wine and non-alcoholic drinks will also be available for purchase. Music starts at 3 p.m. and continues until the fireworks show at approximately 9:30 p.m. (weather permitting). All raffle and festival proceeds go to support the work that the Lions Club does in the community throughout the year. Due to public health concerns, there will be NO kiddie rides or bouncy castles this year, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of fun.
Parking near the festival is extremely limited. The 8th, 9th and 10th Street neighborhood will be closed to through traffic and festival parking. Plan to park downtown in the public garages on Jackson Street, at the public lot at 311 10th Street, or ride your bike down.
Remember that all fireworks are ILLEGAL in the city limits of Golden, so leave the fireworks to the professionals. You can view the fireworks show from anywhere along the creek path, near Lions Park, and the Golden History Park.
