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.

And we live just 45 miles south of Parker in Colorado Springs, but I didn't know most of those facts.  Thanks for the post Donna.
