Wheat Ridge Parks and Recreation now has an official mascot: Booster the Rooster!
Booster actually joined the team about a year ago, but due to the pandemic he had to wait to make his big debut. Booster was inspired by a strong desire to boost morale, both for our team members and our beloved patrons and community!
You might be wondering, "why a rooster?!"
Well, as many of you know, Wheat Ridge has a strong agricultural history and is home to the Farmers! Even the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center was designed to resemble the red barn that remains on site; and features a chanticleer (rooster) perched on top! So Booster the Rooster was a natural fit! And let's be honest, he's awesome!
Be on the lookout for surprise appearances from Booster! You might spot him in our parks and open spaces, at the Rec Center and other facilities, and at future special events! We hope you'll wave, give an elbow bump or a high-five, but mostly we hope you'll smile and feel a little boost to carry you through the rest of your day!
