The Denver Natural Areas Program offers residents a chance to experience nature in their own backyard. Designated Natural Areas and priority landscapes encompass over half of the acreage within the City Parks network. Although many of the individual areas are not large, the priority landscapes identify important natural features that improve quality of life throughout the City.
Key areas of focus
- Native plant communities that support native wildlife
- Corridors that help people and wildlife move through the City
- Sustainable water resource management to improve water quality and encourage water conservation
- Places for children and community to discover and enjoy nature
