PEACE… It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
Answering the challenge to define the word “Peace” can actually be a daunting task for many. It’s typcially easier to think about peace in terms what it isn’t (i.e. absence of war or conflict) versus what it is.
But what the Peace Pavilion at Rotary River Park aims to provide the Steamboat Springs community is a place that creates an emotional state whereby users feel great energy. And that energy is used to reinvigorate your mind and refresh your enthusiasm for the natural beauty of our area.
The Peace Pavilion at Rotary River Park serves as a celebrated landmark along the Yampa Valley Core Trail. A place where individuals and groups can gather freely to rest, reflect, rejoice, and rejuvenate. This structure provides many uses for many people and stands as a focal point for peace in our community and the world that surrounds us.
By giving to this project you are demonstrating your support for something larger than any one individual. Think of your donation, no matter the amount, as a single drop in an otherwise calm body of water. The ripples your contribution creates will impact the entirety of this effort. Your financial dedication will positively affect both your friends and neighbors in this community and you can celebrate in knowing you played a role in this.
Serving as the gateway to the scenic Yampa River Boardwalk, this pavilion stands as a noteworthy enhancement to the Core Trail, a gathering place for individuals of all ages and abilities, and a beacon of peace in Routt County. But none of this can be achieved without the kindness, generosity, and support of individuals like you.
