Parker, Colorado

Parker CO home is a commuter town in southeast Denver real estate.  Residents of Parker CO real estate move here because of the great Douglas County schools, thriving business sector, recreation centers, beautiful golf courses and trail systems.  The fast-growing Town of Parker CO features homes with lush pine groves and amazing views of the Rocky Mountains and Denver city lights on the horizon.

Additional recreational activities are found at the Parker Recreation Center and at the new Field House with its ice skating rink and climbing wall.  Sixty miles of maintained walking trails meander through town and up through Cherry Creek.


Beginning in 1860, the community began with a little old shack called Twenty Mile House for a stage stop.  As it grew into a 10-room inn under the ownership of namesake James Sample Parker, it became a major stopping point for the railroad.  During the Great Depression of the 1930s, the bank was robbed, railroad tracks were washed out, and low prices in the produce market almost destroyed the village.  As Denver CO real estate grew towards the area, Parker CO incorporated in 1981 with 285 people to avoid annexation.  Twenty-five years later, there are over 40,000 residents.

However, governmental agencies and residents have worked to sustain the small-town atmosphere in the beautiful rural area.  Adopting a pro-business attitude, utilizing technology and creativity, the community has pulled together an exemplary sense of teamwork and volunteerism.
