Glen Huntington Bandshell, Boulder, Colorado

I love Deco bandshells. Many have been lost or are in a very bad state. This one’s been fixed up!
Colorado - Boulder: Central Park - Glen Huntington Bandshell
The Glen Huntington Bandshell, located along Canyon Boulevard between 13th and 14th Street, was designed by architect Glen Huntington, with site planning by landscape architect Saco De. Boer, in 1938. The structure is significant for its role in the social and cultural life of the city and for its importance in the history of park development. Erected by the Boulder Lions Club and donated to the city of Boulder, it is a rare representative of the art deco style as reflected in its streamlined composition, compound arch, and simplified design. The Parks and Recreation Department completed rehabilitation of the structure in 1997.
