Parks and Recreation Capital Projects

O'Brien Park Playground

Playground is now open! A planning process was completed with the community in 2019 to identify improvements needed for the O’Brien Park Playground. Due to COVID, the project construction was put on hold. In late 2021, the project was re-initiated, and the park reopened in 2022. 

New O'Brien Park playground additions and improvements include:

  • New universally accessible playground equipment and surfacing
  • Additional shade pavilions and picnic tables
  • Climbing wall/hillside play area
  • Swing bench seating
  • Musical instruments
  • Drinking fountain with bottle filler
  • Landscape and irrigation

Harvie Open Space Access Improvements: Construction will be underway this year near the intersection of Mainstreet and Canterberry Parkway for the Harvie Open Space Access Improvements Project. Work includes intersection modifications for a future parking lot on the north side of the intersection. Work for the access project is scheduled to be completed by late summer 2023. Open space improvements, which need to be completed before the space is available for public use, are tentatively scheduled to be completed by late 2023.

Anticipated High Plains Trail Overpass Construction Dates: The construction of the Parker Road Overpass for High Plains Trail will be suspended until min-May due to waiting for a bridge fabrication to continue to the next phase. Construction on the Parker Road Overpass for the High Plains Trail began in April 2022 and is expected to be completed by Spring 2023. This phase of the project is being coordinated by Arapahoe County Open Spaces, Public Works and Development, and Jalisco International, Inc.

Salisbury North Park Expansion

The Town of Parker owns 90 acres of land adjacent to the Salisbury Equestrian Park and Sports Complex in the Cherry Creek Corridor.  The Salisbury North Park is scheduled to be designed in 2023. The park amenities on the master plan include multi-use turf fields, baseball/softball fields, tennis courts, pickleball courts, play areas, pavilions, trails, parking and landscaping. Park amenities will most likely be built in phases depending on available funding and approval by Town Council. The first phase of construction is anticipated to start in 2024.

The Trails at Crowfoot residential community located south of Stroh Ranch near Crowfoot Valley Road is currently under construction and will include a new centrally located 17-acre community park. Find more information about the Trails at Crowfoot Community Park here.
