Friends of Monument Valley Park

Latest News!

On February 1, 2016, we were thrilled to learn that we were awarded a State Historical Fund grant in the amount of $170,570 to use for the repair and preservation of the historic Columbia Street Entrance.  The 400 foot long stone entryway was built in 1938 by the Works Progress Administration and is located in the northern half of Monument Valley Park. 

The Give! Campaign

Thank you to everyone who donated to our 2015 Give! Campaign.  We raised $21,987 during the campaign that ran from November 1st to December 31st.  The Give! Campaign is sponsored by the Colorado Springs Independent and the Pikes Peak Community Foundation.

We will use the funds that we raised in our Give! Campaigns for the required cash match for our State Historical Fund grant to repair and preserve the WPA-era Columbia Street Entrance.  We want to ensure that the Park's historic stonework is not lost due to neglect.

In 2014 we completed the repairs to the Geologic Column's adjacent retaining walls with funds raised through past Give! Campaigns and a State Historical Fund grant.  On your next visit to Monument Valley Park, please take a walk by the Geologic Column to see the efforts of our preservation work.
