WELCOME TO PENROSE PARK
& RECREATION DISTRICT
Supported primarily by a dedicated property tax, the Penrose Park & Recreation District maintains and services Penrose Park on Park Place, two blocks east of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado. The 7.7-acre public facility includes playgrounds, basketball/pickleball and volleyball courts, an athletic field and a horseshoe pit. Other amenities are a community center, pavilion and gazebo, all of which can be rented for events. Recent park improvements include a new sprinkler system and over an acre of new grass, four shade structures and more than 30 trees. The district's Board of Directors are developing plans to upgrade the park further in 2021.
Regular meetings of the district's Board of Directors are the first Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m. at the park, 401 Park Place. The public is invited to attend, and volunteers are always welcome! Board workshops (to prepare for the meetings) are on the last Tuesday of the month, also at 9 a.m.
After having to cancel last year because of COVID, the Penrose Park & Recreation District’s annual Easter Egg Hunt event is back this year! The date will be Saturday, April 3. Activities in the park will be from 9 to 11:30 a.m., featuring breakfast, games and separate hunts for three age groups. We need volunteers to help serve breakfast and assist with games. If your church or organization is interested in helping out, please call 719-367-2832, or come to the board workshop at the park Tuesday, March 9 at 9:30 a.m.
None scheduled at this time.
