Rueter-Hess Recreation Planning


Plans for making the Rueter-Hess site a recreation amenity are presently in the developing stage, and momentum is growing. To date, 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 bring this project to life in years to come.

Now that the Final Concept Map for recreational opportunities is complete, the Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority will begin discussions regarding funding, budgeting, staffing, management and phasing of the project. Stay tuned for future announcements and plans as this exciting project progresses.
