Photos: Better Block project transforms Jefferson Park spot

Sometimes, it takes a village. On Saturday, it took a neighborhood. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. that day, residents, community organizers and nonprofit volunteers gathered for Denver's first Better Block project, which re-created West 25th Avenue from Federal Boulevard to Eliot Street. The makeover attracted more than 1,500 visitors to re-imagine the area as a more colorful, pedestrian-friendly environment -- one that organizers hope to make a permanent reality.
