The Field Open Space

Each year, the Broomfield Open Space and Trails and the Broomfield Open Space Foundation sponsor a spring and fall open space speakers series. In April, the presentation, "Keep the Field in Broomfield" showcased the efforts of local residents to preserve the Field Open Space, Broomfield's first purchase of open space. In this video, the panel of residents speak about the heartfelt community outreach that inspired them to work together to preserve this land. The video also includes a short documentary on the Field completed by two Broomfield Middle School students. The Field is located north of the Civic Center (north of E. 3rd Ave., east of Main St., south of 10th Ave, and west of Ash St.)
