The following is from Chase Cowan, previous PL:
Palmer Park, named after General William Palmer and a founder of Colorado Springs, donated the park to the city under the condition that it remain open to the public. In the past, the community and the surrounding schools have used it as place to learn and aide in a healthy lifestyle; however, the park and its trails have become victim to vandalism, trail erosion and are no longer patronized as often because of the state of disrepair.
The Mission Continues will conduct service projects with the help of Rocky Mountain Field Institute and the Guardians of Palmer Park to help restore the 730 acre park and its trails.
