Red Rock sign flub

QUESTION: Recently the city placed green signs along Highway 24 pointing to the new “Red Rocks Canyon Park.” Previous references I've seen call it Red Rock Canyon. Which is correct?
- Cheryl, Manitou Springs

ANSWER: It’s officially Red Rock Canyon Open Space. And it will be Red Rock Canyon Open Space once again — when the signs are corrected.

It was apparently a case of “netspeak," BTW. The city and state were having informal e-mail discussions of the possible types of regulatory signs at the new open space and potential sign locations. One e-mail accidentally referred to it as “Red Rocks Canyon Park.” An enthusiastic signmaker jumped the gun a bit and picked up that verbage, which will be changed as soon as possible.
