For the past two years, the Cranmer Park – Hilltop Civic Association has been working with representatives of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department staff to discuss the much needed full restoration of the Sundial and the plaza area in Cranmer Park. While City funds of more than $550,000 have been committed to this project, the entire restoration project requires an additional million dollars to be raised.
Under the guidance of Councilwoman Mary Beth Susman, and with the assistance of The Denver Foundation, a new fundraising effort has launched – the Save Our Sundial campaign. With limited government funding available, the goal is to raise the needed amount through the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations.
Denise Sanderson will be coordinating the efforts of this group, and is currently forming a committee to help with the Save Our Sundial campaign. If you would like to be involved, please contact her at DeniseSanderson105@gmail.com or at 303-320-1647.
