It’s never been more important to grow our parks and acquire additional land for trails and open space,” said Happy Haynes.  Happy is the Executive Director of Parks and Recreation. This property will be managed primarily as a conservation area focused on sustainability.  It will also expand mountain park access for Denver residents and visitors.  Search homes for sale in Flying Horse at http://www.rehava.com

450 Acre Parcel Under an Hour From Denver 🙂

The 450-acre parcel of land is less than an hour drive from Denver.  It’s adjacent to Roosevelt National Forest and near Arapaho National ForestGolden Gate Canyon State Park, and Jefferson County Open Space. The acquisition will join over 14,000 acres of contiguous public lands.

The donation from the Axton family to the City and County of Denver for its Mountain Park System is subject to approval from the City Council.

Previously a Small Cattle Ranch

The property was historically operated as a small cattle ranch and has been in the Axton family since 1954, spanning four generations. 

We are excited to donate this beautiful ranch to Denver Mountain Parks, said the Axton family. We feel they will steward and preserve it for future generations to love and enjoy as we have. Congratulations City of Denver for your interest in preservation and your newest mountain park.
