Parker, Colorado: 12 Interesting Facts

Parker, Colorado: 12 Interesting FactsParker, Colorado

 

I have been a resident of Parker, Colorado since March 1997.  As so many people do, I moved to be closer to work.  Now, more than 14 years later, I still live here because I love the town and the location!  Of course, the town has grown since we first moved here, but it still retains its small town feeling and its sense of community.
