I will readily admit that I do not go downtown often enough. It’s my own fault, life is pretty convenient in Briargate, and despite only being 15 minutes away, I just don’t go! Yesterday however, I attended a meeting downtown for the Economic Development Corporation (focused on attracting new employers to the city), and got way ahead of schedule. So I decided to visit America the Beautiful Park with my camera. It is one of the newest of the city parks, and part of a revitalization program for the downtown. Located at the confluence of Fountain Creek and Monument Creek, only 2 blocks from the center of downtown, I can’t believe I never stopped here before! The Penrose Fountain (shown above) was quite amazing. There are lots of walking paths, and it was really peaceful.

The meeting was very informative, and reawakened my sense of civic duty, I think I’ll be getting as involved as time allows. It is a very talented group of people from all walks of life, and they all seemed to share a common theme: they LOVE Colorado Springs!
