Highland Heritage Regional Park

Highland Heritage Regional Park Construction Update

Construction is underway in the northwest corner of Highland Heritage Regional Park where Grand Golf was previously located. New LED parking lot and pedestrian lights have been added. LED sports lighting and concrete parking lot curbing, sidewalks, and plaza work are being installed. Fields are currently separated by black, chain-linked fences to protect balls from entering other fields of play and rolling into drainage areas. Drainage pipe and gravel-based material are being installed before synthetic turf carpet is added to the fields. The site will also feature three new picnic shelters. Construction is expected to be complete in November 2016.

The dog off-leash area is maintained by Highlands Ranch Metro District (Ph: 303-791-2710). dogOffLeash (1)

Land Patent records show Johan Welte as the original owner with the Land Patent issued on Nov. 19, 1887.  It is curious that a John Beat Welte obtained a Land Patent in the same Section on May 11, 1892.  Research suggests that Johan Welte and John Beat Welte were the same person.  Johan Welte doesn’t appear in census records, but John Welte does.  The only public reference to Johan Welte was a newspaper account of a family birthday party.  Similar family accounts show that Johan and John were born in October and possibly in the same year.   John Welte was a well‐known cheese maker.
