Park Master Planning

In 2017 the city began updating the master plan for North Cheyenne Cañon Park. The city released a recommended master plan prior to the May 10th Parks Advisory Board meeting. Thank you to those who provided us with your input on the recommended plan.

The Friends of Cheyenne Cañon Board of Directors has reviewed the recommended plan released for the May 10th Parks Advisory Board meeting, and calls for revisions and further process before endorsing the plan.

Donate Your Gear for Friends of Cheyenne Cañon

Announcing another great partnership with Mountain Equipment Recyclers (MER)! When you donate your gently-used gear to MER on behalf of the Friends of Cheyenne Cañon, 50% of the proceeds will go to the Friends of Cheyenne Cañon.

They consign and sell high-quality new and used outdoor equipment and apparel. Friends of Cheyenne Cañon have joined other organizations in the mission of MER to support nonprofits in the region. Since 2013 MER has contributed over $100,000 back to the community. This is another win-win with a community business partner. If you attended the December member/volunteer dinner you received a $5 coupon for purchases at MER. Now is the time to check out the store and bring those unwanted, outgrown, outdated items in to donate and buy new with your coupon!

How to donate your gear:
1. Go to MER at 1024 S. Tejon Street
2. Donate your gear and be sure to specify Friends of Cheyenne Cañon as the beneficiary! You can make your donation at any time during MER's regular business hours.
