Trees for Trinity Community Park

Step1: get a library card, step 2: get a tree!

Community parks provide outdoor greenspaces where people of all ages can relax and enjoy the fresh air, and children can play. This Earth Day, Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD) is teaming up with the Trinity Community Park in Monument to plant trees.

Trinity Community Park brings inclusivity and diversity to outdoor spaces with an accessible playground suitable for all abilities. The play equipment design takes a wide variety of different abilities into consideration and facilitates engagement between people with and without disabilities. The park offers adaptive swings, a wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round, sensory panels, a wheelchair-accessible trampoline, and other adaptive equipment, making it a space where all children can go to have fun outdoors.  

With accessible play equipment installed and plenty of green space to enjoy, it is now time to plant trees! To support this effort, anyone who signs up for a new library card at Monument Library from Mon., Feb. 26 through Fri., March 15 will be able to register for a free tree sapling to plant at the park during Earth Week. Saplings will be planted during two community planting days, on Sun., April 21 from 11 a.m. - noon and Mon., April 22 from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. All ages are welcome.

Together, we can help this community park continue to grow.
