2013: Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park
The Westminster Legacy Foundation along with the entire Westminster and Colorado community mourned the loss of Jessical Ridgeway, a 10-year-old Westminster resident who was tragically kidnapped while walking to school. Jessica eventually was killed during the commission of this heinous crime. WLF listened to the outcry of the community to find a way to memorialize this lovely, young girl who loved the color purple, enjoyed the great outdoors and dreamed of one day becoming a Denver Broncos cheerleader. Through generous donations and grants from the Westminster and Colorado communities, the Westminster Legacy Foundation was able to support this project with $130,000. This space was created to honor 10-year-old Westminster resident, Jessica Ridgeway. The purple throughout the park reflects Jessica’s love of the color and the community’s love of Jessica.
