Recreator - Fall 2018 - 12

Message from the Parks and Recreation Board

TAKE ROOT. GROW.
FLOURISH.
Who among us doesn't remember the thrill of a pleasant surprise?
Well, get ready for a supremely enchanting experience that is
currently in the making on the Great Lawn at the Gardens on
Spring Creek. Under the direction of Executive Director Michelle
Provaznik, the Friends of the Gardens and several key community
partnerships, a new outdoor performance venue is in the making and
scheduled to be unveiled to the public in the fall of 2019. Dubbed
the "Everitt Pavilion," in honor Bob Everitt and his family. The stage
and surrounding areas will be a welcome addition to our current
performance venues at the Lincoln Center, with the benefit of an
outdoor environment.
The west side of the area is flanked by three concrete walls facing
southeast to provide sound mitigation for bordering neighborhoods
and avoid excess sun exposure for patrons. The outside is finished
with a stucco treatment while the inside is coated in pyrok, an
acoustical treatment which absorbs sound. All concerts will end at 8
p.m. to honor the privacy of the surrounding neighborhoods. A total
of 22 trees from the former grounds of Hughes Stadium have been
moved and planted to provide shade and fill in with mature planting.
The grassy picnic area will be planted with Kentucky Bluegrass, to
withstand wear and tear, and provides a soft turf for picnicking.
Large rocks from a quarry in Colorado will provide the space for
eating, as well as define the various gardens within the area. Up
to eight concerts will begin in the spring of 2020. Michelle has
been coordinating with Jack Rogers, Director of the Lincoln Center,

to schedule the performances. In addition to musical events, the
stage is available for weddings, birthday parties, receptions, family
reunions, retirement parties, children's camps, school tours, and
yoga retreats. The Great Lawn will become a place to celebrate "life's
moments and memories," according to Michelle.
Once the Great Lawn is open to the public, residents can enjoy a
unique gathering place that embraces the natural world, art, culture,
and quiet solitude. Guests can explore The Undaunted Garden,
designed by Lauren Springer Ogden who authored a book of the
same title; the Prairie and Foothills Gardens; the Butterfly Pavilion;
the Moonlight Garden; and rose and fragrance gardens.
The Gardens on Spring Creek, along with the Community Foundation
of Northern Colorado and Bob and Joyce Everitt, have planted a
seed. We invite you to join the Everitt family, Community Foundation
and City of Fort Collins in the opening of this outdoor performance
and event venue.
"Take root. Grow. Flourish."
