ABOUT THE SSPF...
Founded in 1979, the South Suburban Park Foundation was created to enrich open spaces and to improve park and recreational amenities for residents of the south suburban communities of the metropolitan Denver area. We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who represent businesses, civic groups, trail users and community leaders within the south metro area.
The Foundation is committed to leaving a legacy of greenways, trails and open space through successful partnerships with community members, government agencies, corporations and philanthropic institutions.
TRAIL PROJECTS IN ACTION
The two primary projects the Foundation continues to partner on include the Centennial Regional Trail Link (CRTL) and the Littleton Community Trail. These future trails will provide diverse trail opportunities serving a wide range of communities. Upon completion, the CRTL will provide a significant east-west multi-use trail from University to the larger regional High Line Canal trail system. The Littleton Community Trail, in preliminary planning stages, will provide a crusher fine walking path through Littleton providing multiple community connections.
