Yep, you read that right. Red Rocks Amphitheater a National Historical Landmark.
The infamous amphitheater that has been in the news recently for the noise complaints, is *officially* going to become what many in Colorado already assumed it was, or thought it should be. A bonafide landmark to be preserved, enjoyed and admired for many many more generations.
The application has been approved, by a unanimous vote I might add, and is in the final stages of becoming a land mark. With this addition, Red Rocks will be Denver’s second national landmark with Civic Center Park being the first.
As many many Coloradan’s know, Red Rocks is a so much more than just a concert venue. On some days in the summer, it becomes a movie theater showing old flicks and bringing people together to a nostalgic place. For others, its an outdoor gym. Walking the trails surrounding the park, running the stairs, or participating in the Yoga on the Rocks, the uniquely designed space is something different for everyone.
For the residents of Morrison and the surrounding foothills, Red Rocks is something to be proud of. Performers travel from around the globe to entertain their fans as this one of a kind location. The presence of it alone will draw people in and in turn, increase the value of the community. It adds that feel of Colorado uniqueness that people thrive on. It is its own identity and one I for one, couldn’t imagine not seeing tucked away into our Colorado foothills.
With Red Rocks Amphitheater a soon to be National Historical Landmark, it’s safe to say that everyone lucky enough to visit this magnificent place, will continue to have memories there to last a lifetime.
