Comments:
“I think it’s time we do a monthly again at Stapleton. This time not to promote any specific event, but to encourage Kiting in a great location where Doug Field flies almost daily, and Roland is flying at more often also. Formerly the site of Denver’s ORIGINAL International Airport, Stapleton Airport has been redeveloped into residential and commercial subdivisions. Martin Luther King Blvd. was extended across the former entrance to the long ago removed Terminal eastward across where there were once runways. Cement debris from the demolished tarmac are the base buried under the grassy hills in the center section of Stapleton’s Central Park. A straight sidewalk with light posts runs west to east, mimicking a Runway. The one remaining structure that identifies that this was an Airport is the Control Tower. The adjacent parking garage structure was being demolished when this was written in April, 2011.This field has been the site of Denver’s One Sky One World (OSOW) kite festival on the 2nd. Sunday in
