DENVER — Elitch Gardens in Denver has announced plans to reopen this spring after being closed for all of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Elitch Gardens website, the plan is to reopen the park on May 1.

“We have had positive conversations with City and State officials in the last two weeks and have submitted our plan to the City, which they have since forwarded on to the State,” Elitch Gardens said in a statement. “We are extremely hopeful that we will be formally granted permission to open this spring on our planned opening date of May 1st. We look forward to joining the other family attractions and bringing back safe outdoors fun to Colorado families.”

In preparation for opening day, the park has developed significantly increased sanitation protocols and standards as well as communications and procedures for managing appropriate social distancing so that when guests and staff return, they can do so safely.

For those that have already purchased a 2020 Season Pass, your pass has been automatically transferred to the new 2021 VIP Season Pass. If the park ends up not opening for the 2021 season, the pass will extend to the 2022 season.
