Our Mission

The mission of the South Suburban Park and Recreation District is to foster healthy living through stewardship of the environment, parks, trails, and open space and by providing recreational services and programs.

Our History

In the late 1950s, several Arapahoe County civic leaders shared a vision to create a public park that would provide local residents with numerous recreational amenities. That vision grew into an entire parks organization, supported by its citizens, that would strive to provide public parks and recreational programs that would benefit all of its residents. Check out A Brief History of South Suburban to learn more about the District.
