Lower Level Parking Lot Closure

Beginning next week, the lower level parking lot (outside tennis courts) will be undergoing construction and there will be no access to parking there.

While this lot is usually used by staff, if you find a shortage of parking in our lots, please park across Dahlia Street in the Greek Orthodox lot. We understand this may be inconvenient but we are so excited for the new parking lot and the site work which will enable us to serve you better.

Email constructioninfo@jccdenver.org with any questions and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation!
