Public meeting about military munitions in park on Green Mountain. Details here.

The north side of Hayden Park on Green Mountain was used as an artillery target range for the nearby Camp George West, the Colorado National Guard’s training facility during the first half of the 20th century. As such, the possibility of old military munitions and debris exists in the park. Park visitors should stay on marked trails as the park rules require. The U.S. Army Corps. of Engineers, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Colorado Army National Guard are working to investigate the presence of old munitions to determine ways to clean up the area.
