Park in Fort Carson's Comanche Community receives a new landscape
More than 25 volunteers from BrightView, the nation’s leading landscape services company, donated time and resources to renovate a playground for military famliies stationed at Fort Carson, a United States Army installation in El Paso County, Colo.
BrightView’s team was joined by volunteers from Balfour Beatty, service members, and their families on a Saturday morning to install 2,250 square feet of sod, 100 shrubs and perennials, and trees.
“The park was in need of significant repairs and did not provide any shade for visitors,” said Dean Laird, BrightView Account Manager for Fort Carson. “We wanted to make the park more inviting for the families to enjoy.”
The BrightView team coordinated with some of their local vendors to donate supplies needed for the project.
“It was very satisfying to see what started as an idea turn into a vision and come together with generous contributions and help from so many people working together to give back to our military community,” Laird said.
The group of volunteers and community members also applied a bed of mulch to the playground area and painted a new awning.
“We have worked here at Fort Carson for six years and I’ve never seen families use this park,” Laird said. “Our first day out after completing the project, I saw about 15 kids enjoying the playground with a few families having a barbecue under the pavillion. It’s rewarding to see the community members already enjoying their new park.”
