If you’re looking for a community to support a fit lifestyle, the Town of Parker is your kind of place. As scored by the exercise and nutrition website BarBend, Parker placed 10th on a list of Colorado’s 50 Top Cities for Fit Lifestyles for 2020.

Communities were ranked on a comparison of 11 data points including access to exercise opportunities and healthy food, air and water quality, and health factors. 

Given that 95 percent of Parker residents live within a 10-minute walk to a park, trail or open space area, and are supported by the nationally-accredited Parker Parks and Recreation Department, plentiful and diverse fitness opportunities are readily accessible in our community.
