MONUMENT VALLEY PARK ROCKS!


The Give! 2016 Campaign

Our Give! 2016 Campaign runs from November 1st to December 31st and is sponsored by the Colorado Springs Independent.  We are excited to be part of the 2016 Campaign along with 71 other worthy local nonprofits.

The funds that we raise in our Give! Campaign will be used for the repair and preserva- tion of Monument Valley Park's historic stonework.  Our next project is the repair of the WPA era 400-foot-long Columbia Street Entrance.  The engineers have completed their drawings, and the masonry work will begin in the spring/summer of 2017.  Our goal is to ensure that the Park's historic stonework is not lost due to neglect.

State Historical Fund Grant Awarded!


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.  In addition to the grant funds, we will be contributing $64,000 in funds raised through our Give! Campaigns and the City of Colorado Springs is providing $20,000.  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.
