Rueter-Hess Recreation Planning


First phasing of the trails and incline challenge were completed in November 2020.  The Towns of Parker and Castle Rock, Douglas County, and the Cities of Lone Tree and Castle Pines have committed to creating a partnership which will continue to add to the future phases of recreation activity.

The Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority continues work on funding, budgeting, staffing, management and phasing of future projects.
