Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park
There was a special gathering at the Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park in Westminster Sunday that honored missing children in Colorado.
A year after a 10-year-old Westminster girl was abducted on her way to school and killed, a park where she used to play has been formally dedicated to her memory.
Construction on the park honoring Jessica Ridgeway began on Tuesday.
As the search for Jessica Ridgeway turned into the hunt for her murderer, the Chelsea Park became a focal point for the community’s grief, and a plan to rename it in Ridgeway’s memory united strangers in a common cause.
A park in Westminster that served as a place to remember a young murder victim will be renamed to permanently honor Jessica Ridgeway.
