Service Center open to the public
Our Parks, Recreation and Open Space Service Center opened to the public this week. We are now offering summer camps and a few recreation programs. Visit our recreation website for program information, call 303-791-2710 or come by our office at 3280 Redstone Park Circle.

If you opt to come to the office, we ask that all visitors wear masks and practice social distancing. Thank you for adhering to the new guidelines.
Care for the canal
The High Line Canal Conservancy is hard at work protecting the 71-mile greenway that spans 11 governmental jurisdictions, including the Metro District. Summer canal projects include:
  • Signage, including new mile markers
  • Stormwater transformation in four locations
  • Safer crossings and access, and more
Hit the trail yourself while maintaining social distancing. High Line Canal maps and Highlands Ranch trail maps are available at our Parks, Recreation and Open Space Service Center, 3280 Redstone Park Circle, Highlands Ranch.
Summer events canceled
Due to public health concerns, the Metro District made the difficult decision to cancel two of our long-standing, popular summer events. KidFest, scheduled for June 13, and the Ice Cream Social, scheduled for July 8, have both been canceled. We hope to see you out on the trails, in the parks, or at one of our summer recreation camps this year.
Projects continue to move forward
