Park Locations & Definitions

♥ Regional Parks

Foothills regional parks serve the largest populations or regions in the District and South Jeffco. These sites are significant for District athletics, tournaments, and special events. They are in a centralized location, are their own entity, offer a wide variety of recreation opportunities and contain the largest amount of acres. At present, Foothills offers four regional parks, totaling 637 acres, for you and your family’s use and enjoyment. Pictured below: Clement Park

♣ Community Parks

Community parks typically attract visitors from nearby subdivisions. The focus is meeting community-based recreational needs, as well as preserving unique landscapes and open areas. Foothills manages eight community parks totaling 240 acres. Pictured below: Harriman Lake Park

♦ Neighborhood Parks

Neighborhood parks are usually located within a single subdivision. Like community parks, each site is specific to the needs of the subdivision, but also to the benefit of the District as a whole. Neighborhood parks serve as a gathering place or focal point within the subdivision. Foothills manages 35 neighborhood parks totaling 446 acres. All Neighborhood Park Shelters are free and on a first come first served basis. Pictured below: Estates Park
