Arapahoe County strives to work regionally on its Open Space endeavors. In February 2009, the first meeting of the new Cherry Creek Basin Working Group took place. This group, made of more than 15 municipalities and organizations in Arapahoe, Denver and Douglas Counties, are working together to better serve the open space, park and trail needs of the Cherry Creek Watershed.  The photo shown above was taken during a visit to the Cherry Creek Valley Ecological Park in 2009.

The Group's goal is to conserve and protect our Cherry Creek Basin Watershed’s remarkable places by completing trails, preserving open space, and enhancing parks and recreation for public enjoyment.

In 2012 the CCGWB received a $70,000 grant from the Colorado Parks and Wildlife State Trails Program to construct one mile and one half mile trail markers along the Cherry Creek Regional Trail.  PJMD is coordinating the five markers within the District.
