Weight Lifting Partners of 40 Years: Olivia & David Brandt!

Olivia and David Brandt

In 2019, Oliva and David Brandt moved to Evergreen to be closer to family and shortly became members at Buchanan Park Recreation Center.  David is a retired Air Force pilot, who ran a squadron of approximately 17 jets for distinguished guests (Presidents, Generals, etc). Olivia was a real estate agent, who spent many years giving back to the community and volunteering for organizations like the Red Cross. Olivia and David have been lifting partners for 40 years! They have lifted all over the country and find that the weight equipment and facilities at BPRC are some of the best around! The two feel that BPRC is easy to navigate, offers weight training and has the friendliest staff and customers

Jamie Milligan brings home Bronze!


Our community has had the honor and privilege of watching Jamie Milligan’s journey to the 2022 Special Olympics in Orlando, Florida. From morning trail runs to swimming laps at Buchanan Park Recreation Center, Jamie has displayed the commitment it truly takes to prepare for the Special Olympics. Her commitment paid off, as Jamie earned a Silver Medal in the 1000 Meter Swim and a Bronze Medal in the Triathlon! However, Jamie actually finished the Triathlon first because she was accidentally turned around by a volunteer. Therefore, she did not technically complete the full course and the judging panel ultimately decided to award Jamie with Bronze. Jamie’s results may be bittersweet, however her journey was nothing short of legendary.

Denver Mountain Parks (DMP) has implemented a temporary trail closure on the North side of Evergreen Lake, due to multiple reports of human-elk conflicts. Please call DMP's Ranger Assistance Line at 303-331-4050 to report wildlife conflicts. Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) should also be notified by calling 303-291-7220, as CPW oversees Wildlife Law Enforcement and Public Safety on the trails surrounding Evergreen Lake. Evergreen is home to a wide range of wildlife, including fox, mountain lions and bears. We urge the public to always err on the side of caution and always be aware of your surroundings.
