Growing Up Boulder News

We've Recently launched our first child-friendly City map, and now our first newsletter.

We're on a roll. 

Thanks for being on the ride with us!


Nearly 10,000 child-friendly maps are out the door.  They have been distributed throughout the Boulder community in the past month, including students in every Pre-K to 5th-grade class in BVSD Boulder schools and area preschools and to GUB non-profit partners.  In addition, maps are available around town in public places like the Pearl Street Mall, recreation centers, and the Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Community response has been overwhelmingly positive. We've been getting loads of compliments like this one:

"My 1st grade kid came out of school yesterday and was so excited to show me her child friendly map “It’s a map for kids!!” she told me. On the last day of school this is what she specifically wanted to show me. It was a very nice moment.
