John Venezia Community Park opens in north Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The John Venezia Community Park in Colorado Springs officially opened Saturday, July 8.

Construction of the $13 million northside park began two years ago, and it’s the first large park the city  has dedicated in 10 years.

It will include the second fully inclusive playground in Colorado Springs for people who have any sort of limitation, among other amenities.

Mayor John Suthers was also on hand during the opening ceremony, taking a splash in the fun with all families who showed up.

“We have hundreds and hundreds of kids here, enjoying the water features, we got playing fields, by September we’ll have pickleball courts, this is a fantastic community park,” said Mayor Suthers.

The park is located near Briargate Parkway and Union Boulevard.
