April 1 through June 30, enjoy the unique combinations of fresh fish, meat and veggies on Hawaiian style tacos and bowls at La’au’s, and round up your check for Trails and Open Spaces. The Blue Star Group will match your donation, for double the impact for our trails and open spaces.
Hidden behind the Spencer Center at 830 North Tejon St, La’au’s offers lots of choices–tilapia, mahi mahi, pork, beef–and your choice of fresh veggies and tropical fruits for a crunchy, spicy, taste-awakening meal.
Get your tickets now for one of two showings of Rider and the Wolf! The film tells the story of Mike Rust, the Hall of Fame mountain biker who disappeared without a trace. Ticket sales benefit Bike Clinic Too, a non-profit that donates bicycles to those in need, who need reliable transportation to find jobs and keep appointments. The clinic gratefully accepts donations of bikes, locks, bike parts and cash.

Pikes Peak Greenway (south, near Janitell) Fall 2016
Since the flood took away large piece of land, a portion of the Fountain Creek bank is now on private land. City Parks is working through the city’s legal office to get an easement before they can reconstruct the trail.
Construction is expected to begin this summer with the project completed by fall.
