Daniels Park Master Plan

A jewel in the crown of the Denver Mountain Parks System in Douglas County is receiving some well-deserved tender loving care through a proposed Master Plan for the historical park that represents collaborative efforts between two local governments and surrounding neighbors who share a mutual desire for Park improvements.

Denver Parks and Recreation and Douglas County have worked diligently for several years to create the Daniels Park Master Plan.  The park has attracted regional users for decades who now are joined on a regular basis by the neighbors living adjacent to the park.  The Master Plan and first phase road improvements were funded by Douglas County and were substantially completed in April, 2009.

Phase 2, from Castle Pines Parkway to Griggs Road will begin final design and construction when funding is available.
