Parker, Colorado, is a wonderful place to live, complete with beautifully landscaped parks and neighborhoods, and a charming downtown that maintains a small town feel. About 20 to 30 minutes South of Denver, the state’s capital, Parker allows for residents to experience a quaint suburban feel without being too far from major cities. Parker is also about 45 minutes from the foothills, and an hour from many mountain towns which allows its residents to enjoy the main selling point of Colorado, the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

There are several important details to note about Parker, Colorado when considering it as your new home. The city is cut through by Cherry Creek, and so there are many areas designated as floodplains. This means there is much untouched open space that will remain undeveloped, which is excellent if you prefer a nice view near your home. One important thing to note is the racial makeup of the city is, by a vast majority, white. As of the 2000 census, 92.06% of the town was white.
