Park Types

There are four types of parks that exist within the Evergreen Park & Recreation District: Regional, Community, Specialty, and Neighborhood. The bulk of the District's park work is with community and specialty parks; and although it is a goal to increase the inventory of all public parkland in the District, it is with these smaller parks that most of our labor, and our funds will be spent.

Regional Parks

Regional parks are the work of federal, state, county, and City of Denver agencies. The District exercises an important advisory role with these agencies in the development of large regional parks. It is through the District's input on these projects that it has been able to promote preservation of Evergreen's natural environment and the mountain character of our community.

Community Parks

Community parks normally consist of a few acres of land improved with parking, playground and picnic equipment, ball fields, bicycle paths, and where feasible, grass.

Specialty Parks

Specialty Parks are designed or designated for special uses, often requiring the construction of facilities unique to those uses.

Neighborhood Parks

Neighborhood parks are small parcels of land intended to serve high density populations in their surrounding neighborhoods and may be privately owned for the exclusive use of local residents.
