Parking
There is limited parking on the farm and we’ll be using that space for our various activities. There is ample free parking at the Aurora Municipal Center across the street from DeLaney (15151 E Alameda Pkwy, Aurora, CO 80012). Although the address reads as Alameda Pkwy, if you enter via the Chambers St. entrance and park in the surface lot, you will be closest to the farm. To reach the event site you will cross Chambers. Allow about 10 min to park and walk up to the farm! There will be volunteers and signage to guide you!
