What is Aven's Village?

There are only 2 universally accessible playgrounds in Northern Colorado. Aven’s Village at Island Grove Regional Park will be the third and is named in honor of Aven Mondy, a local girl who has cerebral palsy. Our goal is to fund the playground’s construction which is slated for 2015-2016.
