[ARCHIVED] Parker Trails Network Set to Expand


The Town continues to expand and enhance its network of trails connecting parks, open space, residential communities and public facilities. A major component of this system is the East/West Trail.

Construction of the segment between Jordan Road and Newlin Gulch Boulevard will begin in April with completion this summer. The first segment of this trail is already under contract for construction from Motsenbocker Road to Jordan, with the next phase of construction anticipated for 2016, running from Newlin Gulch Boulevard to Chambers Road. This trail, which is located within the existing Public Service Company right-of-way, will eventually connect to the Cherry Creek Trail and Salisbury Park on the east and Reuter-Hess Reservoir, via the Newlin Gulch Trail, on the west.

In the future, the East/West Trail is planned to continue west through Lone Tree and Douglas County, connecting with major open space and park areas and linking with other existing and planned trails. This trail has been in the planning stages for more than 20 years and is a cooperative effort between the Town, Lone Tree and Douglas County. The Parker portion of the trail is funded by the Town’s existing 1/2-cent sales tax dedicated for parks, trails, open space and recreational amenities.
