MetadataShow full item record
Through an overview of the history of the early park system of Fort Collins, Colorado, it is shown that City Park has been a cohesive stimulus over the years in helping to define and maintain the character of the growing city. What happened in the past becomes the segue to the present, and ultimately to the future. In order to preserve this family oriented community character and maintain a healthy balance for its citizens, the historical character of City Park should be the basis for its restoration and preservation. A city out of balance demolishes or sacrifices its past for its present with no thought of its future.....the best of the past is irreplaceable.
