Dolinsek Gardens

June 27, 2022
 
The City of Aspen Parks and Open Space Department is conducting construction of Dolinsek Gardens, a new public park, at 619 S. Monarch Street. Park construction is anticipated through the fall of 2022, with some finish work occurring in the summer of 2023. 

 

The following items have been completed:

  • Demolition – Removal of the existing garage, house and driveway is completed. 

Current and future phases of construction:

  • Park Construction – Construction of phase one of Dolinsek gardens has commenced including site preparation, grading, paths, flagstone paving, entry markers, irrigation, and planting. Higher impacts include staging of materials onsite, hauling, and heavy equipment operation.
  • Right of Way Improvements (Late summer to fall) – utility abandonment and adjustment, sidewalks, mid-block crossing, paving section of Monarch Street. Higher impacts include staging of materials within the right of way, hauling, heavy equipment operations, Monarch Street utility work and traffic disruption. The mailboxes in front of 619 S. Monarch Street will remain in place as long a construction sequencing practically allows. After that, they will be unbolted and placed on Telemark property.

Final dates will vary pending site conditions and unforeseen circumstances. Should you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the City of Aspen Parks and Open Space Department at 970-920-5120 or Mike Tunte at 970-429-2029.
