Hillside Community Center
Hillside Community Center is one of the City's newer structures. This fabulous local resource opened its doors in April 1990, and it just keeps getting better! The center is a Mecca for an extremely diverse neighborhood, and just East of the downtown core, has won numerous awards for community-building and redevelopment efforts.
Truly a mosaic in motion, this Community Center features a full size basketball court, two volley courts, weight equipment and work out machines, men's and women's locker rooms and showers, classrooms and meeting or activity rooms. Hillside is frequently utilized by various educational programs; political events; cultural activities and more.
Colorado Springs Community Centers:
Located in areas impacted by marginalized socioeconomic conditions, Colorado Springs Community Centers strives to effectively develop creative solutions to improve the quality of life in the surrounding neighborhoods.
Unique partnerships between neighborhood associations, churches, schools, non-profit agencies, private businesses, and military installations allows the Colorado Springs Community Centers to create a unparalleled environment for learning, recreation, and personal growth. Additionally, the Community Centers provide comprehensive and integrated community-based services at a single site for youth, families, the elderly, and those with special needs.
All three sites provide productive outlets that focus on these seven program areas:
Early childhood, youth, and teens
Health and wellness
As a whole the Colorado Springs Community Centers offer numerous programs and services; however, each community center offers an array of activities or amenities to keep all ages engaged throughout the year. One example is the "free" public water playground located at Deerfield Hills. From June to August, all ages are able to get soaked, splashed and sprayed at this staff supervised spray ground.
Together these sites ensure that future generations have the chance to enjoy a place where dreams are nurtured, goals are achieved, and friendships are formed.
