Park renamed in honor of slain Colo. school girl

WESTMINSTER — A city park has been renamed in memory of a 10-year-old Colorado girl who was abducted and killed last month.

The Denver Post reported Thursday the Westminster City Council voted to change the name of Chelsea Park to Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park. Jessica lived in Westminster.

City officials say the old park sign has been removed and will be replaced in about two weeks.

A plan to redevelop the park has been moved up from 2014 to start next year.

Officials say planners are working with Jessica’s family to develop a theme that will be a happy celebration of her life with some of her favorite things, such as a zip line and the color purple.

Officials say city funds are being used and donations will also be accepted.
