A pedestrian-friendly feature that is currently in the works is the development of our trail system and walking paths. Once complete, these trails and pathways will interconnect to the Arapahoe County Trail System creating a continual path that will lead to schools, local green spaces, the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds, the city of Parker and even Cherry Creek State Park (http://cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/parks/CherryCreek) while never having to cross a roadway without a crosswalk
This will not only add additional walking trails through our community, but it will also create an opportunity for safer walking, running, biking and a whole host of other family friendly activities right outside Copperleaf residents doorways. The planning of these trails has been made possible thanks to an Arapahoe County Open Space Grant (see Copperleaf Blog for additional info on this topic) that was awarded to Copperleaf in November of 2016. Final trail plans have been submitted to the County and Copperleaf awaits governmental approval prior to beginning construction.
