Hine Lake is a 38 surface acre, irrigation ditch fed lake. Average depth 20’ – 25’. Note special bass fishing bag limits for the lake. All other Colorado Division of Wildlife Fishing regulations apply. Fish habitat structures sunk throughout the lake in the late 1990’s have enhanced fish populations. Bass, bluegill, green sunfish, and perch can be caught at Hine Lake. Swimming, boating, wading, belly boats, and ice fishing are prohibited.
The original park was built by the developer of the Waters Edge subdivision. It was dedicated to Foothills in the late 1980s. Jefferson County Open Space purchased the remainder of the park in 1992 and leased it to Foothills. It is interesting to note that the park was originally zoned for single family homes prior to the Open Space purchase.
Easton Regional Park is named after former Executive Director Robert Easton, a 31 year employee of the District who served as Executive Director from 1994 through 2007. The park was named after him in 2004 by resolution of the Board of Directors. Easton was instrumental in the initial acquisition of the property and securing funding for park development as well as funding for the facilities Peak Community & Wellness Center, Ridge Recreation Center and Edge Ice Arena.
