You’ve doubtless driven by them thousands of times without paying them much mind. The Japanese garden that rests in the median on Nevada Avenue between the YMCA and Acacia park, or the Nuevo Casas Grandes mural on on Tejon street. These are symbols of the bonds our community has with cities around the world as part of the Sister Cities International program. Many Springs residents will recognize Fujiyoshida, Japan as our first and perhaps, most familiar sister city, but there are five others equally deserving of your sororitorial affections. Warren Hill, president of Colorado Springs Sister Cities International, acquaints us with our far-flung global family.
