For the fourth consecutive year, and fifth time in six years, Douglas County has been ranked as the healthiest in the State of Colorado by the County Health Rankings and Roadmaps report.

The County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, measure vital health factors in counties across America each year.

Douglas County took the top spots for 2019 in both the Health Outcomes and Health Factors categories.

The Town of Parker provides multiple resources to keep fit and active all year long, including 250-plus acres of developed parkland, more than 30 miles of trails, and optimal open spaces along with a full slate of programs offered by Parker Parks and Recreation and Parker Arts.
