Ute Valley Park grows again.

Ute Valley Park open space has grown by 110 acres, the city of Colorado Springs announced Friday.

The newly-conserved tract adds approximately 200 acres of open space on the east side of Ute Valley Park, which is approximately 300 acres. The property was purchased from Hewlett Packard in 2013, and it has been conserved as open space forever thanks to a conservation easement held by Palmer Land Trust.

Preservation funding came from the Trust for Public Land, Great Outdoors Colorado, Friends of Ute Valley Park and Lyda Hill.
