Early Fall on Cherry Creek Trail
Set your plans for the month ahead with our list of five things to know for October.

Feedback sought for My Mainstreet project conceptual site plans:
Combining community feedback, market analysis and existing planning and zoning documents, conceptual site plans for the four downtown sites comprising the My Mainstreet project were developed and released in September. The community is encouraged to review the renderings and provide their feedback via surveys below each concept video. Weigh in on the designs on the My Mainstreet project page on Let’s Talk Parker.

My Mainstreet is a community effort to encourage the right growth in the right places in downtown Parker. The goal is for P3 – Partnering for Parker’s Progress and the Town to partner with residents, business owners and developers to define what the community would like to see on the sites and what is feasible for the private market to develop.

Redesigned Town websites live:
A trio of refreshed Town websites went live in September. Sites with new looks include the main Town of Parker website (, Parker Arts ( and the Parker Police Department (

These new websites were designed to be mobile-friendly and more quickly connect residents to important information and resources.

A redesigned Parker Parks and Recreation website is scheduled to launch in October.

Celebrate Halloween in Parker:
Get your family in the spirit of Halloween with a pair of spooktacular events. Parker Parks and Recreation’s popular Fieldhouse Fright Night returns Oct. 20 with a variety of family-friendly activities.
