Re: “An inside look at Strawberry Fields

In 1885 the citizens of Colorado Springs voted to buy 618.64 acres of land from the Dist National Bank of Colorado Springs. A portion of this purchase encompassed the South CaƱon area including Strawberry Fields.
Do not sell any Strawberry Fields to a private entity !!

If equestrian riders at the Broadmoor want to ride horses let them use the advertised activities at The Ranch at Emerald Valley(7588 Old Stage Rd - Existing facility) ! Or use Stables at the Broadmoor (6620 Old Stage Rd- Existing facility) for equestrian users.
There is no need to construct another Riding Stable. The Park and Rec. Master Plan didn't show our Parks are deficient in Equestrian Riding facilities !!?? Did they?
Also the city has had previous Equestrian Facilities for public use :
Academy Riding Stables at the Garden of the Gods - 4 El Paso Blvd and Mark Reyner Stables, Inc 3254 Paseo Rd .
(This was available since I have been here since 1962)

Why don't we enhance what we have instead of building new Equestrian Facilities that are not justified in our Colorado Springs Park and Recreation Master Plan with public input!!

I find it repulsive to have to fight government for existing lands that were deemed land to be preserved for their natural open space in 1885, for our present open space and future generations right to natural open space.
