A much-anticipated new park will open in Parker in 2017 that is sure to please both dog owners and recreation enthusiasts alike. The 40-acre site, located to the south of E-470 along the Cherry Creek Trail, will include a dog park, trailhead and 18-hole disc golf course.
The dog park portion of the site will feature nearly five acres of space to run, along with shade structures, seating areas, a drinking fountain and an agility course. The disc golf course will be located adjacent to the dog park and will include 18 holes designed with assistance from local disc golf enthusiasts and experts. Also accompanying the park will be a 75-space parking lot with access off Pine Lane.
The project has taken a bit longer than originally expected while the Town acquired more land for the site from an area developer. As a result, the park will be larger than originally planned.
The soon-to-be-named Parker dog park and disc golf course is currently under construction and is expected to open late spring or early summer, pending favorable weather conditions.
