El Pomar Foundation Joins Other Funders and Partners to Support Largest Park Renovation in City History
Last Saturday, the renovation project of Panorama Park broke ground. As the largest park in Southeast Colorado Springs, the space’s revitalization represents a crucial turning point for the community and will provide a beautiful multi-use space for years to come. The City of Colorado Springs, together with RISE Coalition, and with significant input from community members and support from a number of major funding partners, plans to complete the trailblazing project next year.
The Trustees of El Pomar Foundation approved a contribution of $400,000 as a part of the $1 million capital grant to support the RISE Coalition in 2019. Upon the projects’ completion, the park will feature an event space, climbing wall, multi-use sports field, universal playground equipment, improved parking infrastructure and public art created with community member participation. The neighborhood park renovation is the largest in the history of Colorado Springs and comes as the city celebrates its sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary.
