Open Space smaller.jpgGreenwood Village parks, trails and open spaces are a large part of what makes the Village such a special place to live and visit. The Village’s most significant open space area, the Marjorie Perry Nature Preserve, provides picturesque views of the Rocky Mountains and a peaceful setting for users to relax, reflect and enjoy the natural environment. The Village also has award-winning parks such as Westlands Park and Silo Park where families can play in the playground or enjoy a picnic in the park. 

The Village also offers the residents a skateboard park at William McKinley Carson Park, and parks for equestrian users such as Rollin D. Barnard Park and Alexander Lane Equestrian Park. The Village is fortunate to have two significant regional trail systems traversing through the community: the High Line Canal Trail on the west side of the city and the Cherry Creek Trail on the east side of the city.
