Supported primarily by a dedicated property tax, the Penrose Park & Recreation District maintains and improves Penrose Park in Penrose, Colorado. The location is 401 Park Place, two blocks east of Highway 115. The nearly 8-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, any of which can be rented for events. Park improvements in 2020 included an updated 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.

Upcoming Event or Special Meeting
We have scheduled a sports camp for Penrose Elementary students May 12-13, where they will learn basic skills in several sports. Note that this is not a public event. The Penrose Park & Recreation District’s annual Easter Event April 3 was a great success. (To see photos, go to our local website at https://www.penroseparkrec.com.) More than 100 people joined in the fun, which included breakfast, games and candy/prize hunts for three age groups between 0 and 12. Thanks to all our volunteers for helping the Park Board with this event!
