Associate professor to aid with Red Rocks landmark nomination

By Staff


Ann Komara, associate professor and chair of landscape architecture at the University of Colorado Denver, is the principal investigator for a $3,000 grant from the National Park Service to address research questions related to the physical integrity of Red Rocks Park and the amphitheater, its major architectural feature, to put the park design and construction in a national context.

The Red Rocks Park and Mount Morrison Civilian Conservation Corps Camp historic district are included in the overall 640-acre Red Rocks Park, owned and managed by the city of Denver. Red Rocks Park has been determined to be nationally significant, and a National Historic Landmark nomination is being prepared by the National Park Service. Komara’s research will help complete the nomination.
