Park History
Harriman Lake Park is a cooperative effort between Foothills and Denver Water. Denver Water owns the lake and most of the land surrounding it. Foothills leases the recreation rights from Denver Water. This park was dedicated on October 21, 1995. An 11-acre parcel southwest of the lake was leased to Foothills from Jefferson County Open Space in 1995. From December 2011 – February 2013, Denver Water replaced the dam with a new earthen one to satisfy regulatory requirements and bring it to its full capacity for storage.
