Session Details

Denver Mountain Parks and Jefferson County Open Space at Evergreen

Denver Mountain Parks and Jefferson County Open space share many things including land protection and a dedication to providing outdoor recreation opportunities. Fostering an inter-jurisdictional relationship is not easy nor perfect, yet, it is a product of the times. Relationships such as these need to be monitored and adjusted to best serve the public. We are all stewards of the people’s property and good governance requires both an open-eyed awareness of present public needs as well as a pro-active one. Constant and copious communication is key.

In this mobile workshop, participants will visit Evergreen Lake, Dedisse Park, the lake house and golf course. Participants will get to the opportunity to walk around one of the most beautiful properties in the mountain park systems and talk about the challenges and opportunities of a multi-municipality park management program.
