"This space was a vacant lot filled with weeds before."

New Freedom Park is such a great space for my family and our community. Just a few years ago, this space was a vacant lot filled with weeds. Instead of playing soccer on a dirt field with broken glass, now my kids play on a soccer team on a real field with grass and boundary lines. What used to be a sometimes scary empty space now is a green space with a playground, park and garden. Many of us moved to Denver as refugees. This is just the space we dreamed of when we thought of moving to this country. We are so lucky to have this safe and beautiful space where our kids can play sports nearby.

"Every trail seems to have an incredible view."

I moved to Colorado because of the hiking and biking and all the wonderful outdoor activities. Every trail seems to have an incredible view of mountains, lakes or forests. There is no place like Colorado. I’m turning 50 next year and my goal is to climb every 14er in the state. Wish me luck! Thank you, Great Outdoors Colorado for making this possible.

"I’ve seen some pretty amazing things in Colorado."

As a park ranger in Colorado, I’ve seen some pretty amazing things. Colorado is truly one of those special places where you are surrounded by incredible wildlife and spectacular views all year. Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) has helped to make that possible by protecting open spaces and supporting Colorado’s great outdoors. Whether it’s seeing a deer drinking at a stream when I’m fishing or hearing the birds chirp around me as I’m hiking to my favorite Colorado mountain top, none of this would be possible without GOCO.

"You don’t need to travel far to enjoy the outdoors."

The great outdoors is even greater when it’s right out your front door. I like heading to the mountains on the weekends if I can, but sometimes it’s hard to make the trek. To be able to walk out your door and hike on a trail right in the city, or bike a path minutes from downtown, is a luxury. Every evening after work I walk my dogs on the path near my house. You don’t need to travel far to enjoy the outdoors and see all the things Colorado has to offer. The fact that Great Outdoors Colorado funds open spaces makes me so grateful to live here.
