Twenty-five years ago, spurred on by a visit to the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, Joe Shoemaker, along with other ‘believers’ in the value of a modernized, flood-controlled river, undertook the initial project of cleaning up Denver’s Platte River, developing boating access, and creating adjacent bike paths and parks. That first project has evolved into the Greenway Foundation which continues to reclaim and celebrate the beauty of the Platte River and its tributaries.
