Colorado Cities and Towns week is Sept. 10-16, and to celebrate, the Town of Windsor is hosting three special events for its residents.
There is a Town Hall Talk and Tours event scheduled for 6 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 12. Residents can enjoy hors d'oeuvres, meet and engage with their Town Board, and take a step back in time with a Town Hall history tour. Enjoy stories from teachers who taught when the building—currently used as Town Hall—was known as Park School. This free public event starts in the south parking lot of 301 Walnut St., rain or shine. Residents of all ages are welcome.
At 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 13, the Town hosts the grand opening and ribbon cutting for its new Main Park playground. Dubbed The Main Event, residents can be among the first to try Windsor’s new adventure playground, which includes a two-story ropes play structure combined with low ropes that enables users to climb along a course that begins at ground level and finishes with a slide from 23 feet in the air. Additional amenities include a 75 foot zip line, inclusive hammock swing, a modern version of a see saw, inclusive merry-go-round and more. The new playground is ADA, ASTM, & IPEMA compliant and appropriate for children ages 5 to 12—and it replaces the original, outdated playground installed in 1997. According to Director of Parks, Recreation & Culture Eric Lucas, “The best playgrounds provide a continuous challenge, movement and perceived risk for the user.” The playground is located at 300 Locust St.
The fun continues on Friday, Sept. 14, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., when the Windsor Community Recreation Center hosts a free day for residents. Located at 250 N. 11th St., the Community Recreation Center is an 80,000-square-foot facility that features two gymnasiums, a workout center, multiple fitness rooms, and an indoor aquatic facility with a slide, lazy river, and hot tub.
“We’re very excited about this week’s events,” said Town Manager Shane Hale. “And we look forward to connecting with our residents and celebrating the Town of Windsor’s services.”
Colorado Cities & Towns Week, Sept. 10–16, 2018, is recognized throughout the state by various municipalities and the Colorado Municipal League (CML), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization established in 1923, which represents the interests of 270 cities and towns.
