Parks/Recreation

Parks and open space define many of Denver’s great suburban communities. Washington Park, Cheesman Park, Congress Park, City Park and many others are grand public spaces that are part of Denver’s legacy. When Stapleton was designed, city planners made it a point to build upon this tradition by devoting nearly 30% of its 4,700 acres to parks and open space, increasing the size of the Denver Park system by more than 25%. The centerpiece of Stapleton’s 1,116-acre regional park system is the 80-acre Central Park. Bikeways and paths fill Stapleton’s Sand Creek and Westerly Greek greenways while on the area’s northern border, the community’s extensive bike and trail system links into the 17,000-acre Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. Additionally, the 123-acre Bluff Lake Nature Center and the 23-acre Urban Farm are ideal places for residents to picnic, play soccer or football, and enjoy nature in its truest form.
