Cherry Creek Valley Ecological Park
The Cherry Creek Valley Ecological park is a 25 acre park developed within
a 75 acre parcel park which is located along Cherry Creek. The park
is owned and maintained by Arapahoe County and located at 7600 E. Jasper
Ct. in the City of
Centennial. Principal funding for the park design and construction
was provided by PJMD. The park
has encountered many human disturbances throughout the years included
gravel mining, tree farming, sod farming and rubble & debris disposal.
In 1988, Arapahoe County, in conjunction with Parker Jordan Metropolitan
District, acquired the land in hopes of developing it into a riparian
landscape. The vision for the land was an educational nature park
that would serve the residents of the surrounding community and bestow a
conservation ethic for the treatment of land.
