El Centro Del Quinto Sol Partners with Comcast for Lift Zones

PUEBLO – Pueblo Parks and Recreation partnered with Comcast to provide free internet services to students. Comcast launched a multiyear program called “Lift Zones” which provides Wi-Fi connected internet services in community centers nationwide. A “Lift Zone” opened in Pueblo at El Centro Del Quinto Sol Activity Center in early March as part of this nationwide initiative.

“Through our work on the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the mayor asked the City of Pueblo’s Information Technology Department, to look into internet accessibility and expanding in areas where Pueblo needed more support,” said Director of IT, Lori Pinz. “The “Lift Zone” was something Comcast was offering because of the pandemic, and we saw a need on the east side. The City of Pueblo had the space and room available in El Centro del Quinto Sol and realized it was a prime facility to make this project happen,” said Pinz.

El Centro Del Quinto Sol school year hours are April until June 2, Monday through Thursday 3:00 to 8:00 p.m., Fridays 11:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. and then resume August 15 through November. Summer hours are June 3 until August 14, Monday through Friday 11:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays 12:00 until 6:00 p.m.

“Students and their parents are able to access the internet for school and distance learning when they visit the activity center,” said Pinz.

El Centro Del Quinto Sol is located at 609 E. 6th St. The facility sits on 2.2 acres of land including a skate park and plaza, a playground and the activity center.
