Come out and enjoy a snowy day in the park. Don't miss our annual meeting in February.
From our bird and wildflower walks, to our spring cleanups, Monument Valley Park is perfect for an active spring.
Summer is the busiest time for the park. FMVP's main event during the summer is Musical Mondays in July in the Park.
The Friends of Monument Valley Park is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement and improvement of the natural and cultural environment in the Park. Our Friends group was formed in 2000 and encourages membership for anyone interested in the Park.

Thank you to everyone who donated to our effort to repair the park's historic stonework in our 2017 Give! Campaign. With your help, we raised $26,158 and had our most successful Give! Campaign in our history. We were thrilled to be one of 75 nonprofits selected to be part of the 2017 Give! Campaign sponsored by the Colorado Springs Independent. Give! is a year-end fundraising campaign designed to help us raise money to repair the historic stonework in Monument Valley Park. With funds raised in past Give! Campaigns and with grant funds awarded to us by the State Historical Fund, we have repaired three historic stone features in the Park. Our most recent accomplishment was the repair of the 400-foot long, Columbia Street Entrance. In past years, we repaired the Geologic Column's retaining walls and the Culebra Avenue Overlook.
In our 2017 Give! Campaign, our goal was to raise funds for the repair of the overlooks, bridges and erosion problems at the Geologic Column complex. We also raised funds to repair the crumbling walls of the Serpentine Wall!
Thank you again for caring about Monument Valley Park. We couldn't have done it without our Friends and Supporters! Thanks also to our Matching Grant Sponsors -- Bestway Disposal, Beckony Kitchen & Baths, Bob McGrath Construction, Central Bank & Trust, Colorado College, Frier Planning Concepts, Joseph Henry Edmondson Foundation, Leighty Foundation, Dusty & Katherine Loo Foundation, ONEN, Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, and Young Life.
