The Trails and Open Space Coalition is pleased to announce we are the recipients of a Colorado Health Foundation Grant to support TOSC’s “Connecting People to Parks” project.
The Foundation is committed to improving the health of Coloradans. This project will work with neighborhood organizations and west side institutions near the Midland Trail resulting in supported bike rides that connect schools and neighborhoods to parks using the Midland Trail and bike lanes.
TOSC Bicycle Coordinator Allen Beauchamp will manage the project. TOSC will partner with students from Midland Elementary school, Organization of Westside Neighbors and Council of Neighbors and Organizations for this project. Bike Colorado Springs is a program of the Trails and Open Space Coalition and is working to make bicycling in the Pikes Peak region better for people of all ages and abilities. “Connecting People to Parks” is part of that vision.
The public is encouraged to participate in the free rides and events planned as part of the project!
