Arapahoe County strives to work regionally on its Open Space endeavors. In February 2009, the first meeting of the new Cherry Creek Basin Working Group took place. This group, made of more than 15 municipalities and organizations in Arapahoe, Denver and Douglas Counties, are working together to better serve the open space, park and trail needs of the Cherry Creek Watershed.
The Group's goal is to conserve and protect our Cherry Creek Basin Watershed’s remarkable places by completing trails, preserving open space, and enhancing parks and recreation for public enjoyment.
Members aim to take advantage of the collaboration while building on previous studies and efforts, and will work to cooperatively leverage resources among jurisdictions to realize the group’s vision.
