Spring has sprung in pretty Parker, Colorado! We love seeing our family and friends emerging from their homes to embrace the warmer weather.
Spending time outside as a family is easy and oh-so-fun for Stepping Stone residents, thanks to Parker’s charming downtown, recreational activities, and Colorado trails all close by. Of course, members of our community enjoy more than seven miles of trails and four community parks right outside their doors!
If you’re feeling truly stir crazy after the long winter, continue reading to plan a perfect weekend or day activity in Parker, a Colorado city with small-town vibes.
Sulphur Gulch Trail
Serene, lush, and conveniently located by the PACE Center on Main Street, Sulphur Gulch Trail is only four miles long — and paved — making it accessible to all.
This trail includes beautiful views of farmland, wide Colorado blue skies, and Parker’s charming homes.
Briefly disconnect in the middle of a busy workday, put on your tennies for a quick run, and soak in some sunshine — or take a leisurely morning walk with your family on the weekend. Either way, you’ll enjoy yourself in pure Colorado nature!
Parker has a number of stellar sports complexes, but only Parker Fieldhouse offers more than 10,000 square feet of recreation with a climbing wall, an indoor pool, a sports turf and court, and two batting tunnels. You’ll truly find something for every member of your active family thanks to hybrid kids’ care and support programs — not to mention an expansive fitness center for adults.
Make an appointment to enjoy the center safely while we continue to social distance!
Pine Lane Nursery
It’s *so* close to planting season, and local gardening centers are stocking warm-weather flora for April. After you’ve planned out your plot, head to Pine Lane Nursery to peruse nine acres of purchasable foliage including trees, shrubs, grasses, perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs, and more. Their expert staff can equip you with everything you need to be a successful gardener this spring.

The Parker Arts, Culture, & Events Center
With a number of safely-distanced dance, theatre, and performing arts classes — plus several show series and virtual events — you can explore your artistic side at The PACE Center.
Imaginative play can help you expel excess stress from your daily grind and keep your restless little ones busy. Enroll your kiddos in one of their many classes or camps scheduled around your work day — or if you want an evening out of the house, consider seeing a jazz or comedy show. Prefer to stay at home? You even have the option to stream it!
