Parker, a town of over 40,000 residents located southeast of the Denver metro area is one of the best places to live in Colorado! New housing communities, excellent job growth, a top school system and access to quality health care have made Parker one of the fastest growing areas in the state and nation, attracting both locals and people moving from across the country. The town was established as a mid-1800s railroad stop, and the area still maintains its old west charm. Along with that small-town, quiet feel, Parker has all the modern conveniences and great access to highways, major job areas, and Denver International Airport. Parker also offers hundreds of acres of parkland and open space, 12 miles of paved walking and biking trails, and fine dining and shopping in its historic downtown. The town recently built a new state-of-the-art fieldhouse. Finally, the Parker County Festival has celebrated the start of summer for over 30 years. This 3-day family event, held each year in the heart of Parker offers live music, carnival rides, arts and crafts and a hometown parade – hope to see you there!
