Parker hosts numerous community events, including a Brass Band Festival, the Parker Days Festival, Mayor’s Fitness Challenge, Princess Ball, Independence Day celebrations, all of which bring the town together and enhance the small town feel that the people who live here take great pride in.
The town’s Main Street is a popular destination for shopping and dining, with a mix of classic Victorian architecture complemented by modern structures. With a large park and recreation area next to Main Street, summer days are filled with families enjoying all that Main Street and the downtown area has to offer.
Among the town’s many sources of pride is the Parker Arts, Culture and Events Center (PACE), a state of the art facility that hosts the best touring acts from across the nation, as well as local performances, exhibits and educational programs. The Main Street Center and Ruth Memorial Chapel are also important community gathering places.
As far as the “great outdoors”, Parker has approximately 250 acres of parkland and more than 900 acres of open space, with an expansive trail system. Parker is also a great place for hiking, biking, camping, golfing and fishing, as well as all types of recreational programs and activities for children and their parents.
Served by the highly regarded Douglas County School District, and with new home development underway, Parker provides a perfect setting for families who want to experience a rural Colorado lifestyle, that isn’t too far removed from the metro area.
