Downtown Denver's first and only pop-up park is popping up on 21st street Thursday.

The space is a city initiative to see if the block will work better as a green space than a city street.

Dozens of trees, a dog park, stages, a bike lane, a stone patio, and a large mural will add to the park experience this summer.

More than five thousand people pass through that area on Rockies game days.

A lot fewer when the team is out of town. The hope is that will change with the addition of the temporary park.

The Square on 21st will be there for two months until August when the street will resume serving motorists instead of pedestrians.
