Centennial Trails and Recreation Plan logo

The City of Centennial is in the process of updating the 2007 Parks, Open Space, Trails, and Recreation Master Plan. The 2017 Trails and Recreation Plan will help set the future for parks, open space, trails and recreation in Centennial. 

Community input will be needed as we move into our public outreach phase this spring. This is your opportunity to tell us what you think about existing recreation and what other new experiences can add to your life in Centennial. Through a series of online surveys and upcoming public meetings, you will get many chances to have your voice heard.

Frequently Asked Questions 

It’s been over 10 years since the last plan was adopted, tell me about what will be accomplished with this new plan?

There have been many changes to the recreational offerings in Centennial since the last plan in 2007.  We need to catalog these changes to help us identify these new opportunities. The parks and trails in Centennial continue to be very popular and this plan will help determine where to focus our efforts and funding to maintain what we have and what opportunities are available for improvements.

Are Centennial NEXT and the Trails and Recreation Plan the same thing? Which do I pay attention to and why?

They are two different planning projects that we hope you participate in separately.  Centennial NEXT is a City-wide plan that will guide our approach to preserving, enhancing and growing Centennial’s neighborhoods in a way that promotes mutual prosperity, coordinated public investment and a healthy environment.  The Trails and Recreation Plan specifically focuses on the future of parks, open space, trails and recreation opportunities.

Centennial doesn’t have a Parks and Recreation Department, so how do they provide such great trails, parks and open space for its residents?

It is all about partnerships. The City works with South Suburban Recreation District (SSPRD), Arapahoe County Recreation District and Arapahoe Parks and Recreation District (APRD) to provide new amenities and maintenance to Centennial citizens within each Park District.


I have heard rumblings about a new north-south trail connection called Lone Tree Creek Trail, tell me more.

The Lone Tree Creek Phase 1 from Caley Avenue to Broncos Parkway will be constructed in summer 2017 and will include an accessible eight to ten foot trail. Phase II and III are in the planning process.


This new Trails and Recreation Plan sounds awesome, how do I get involved?

Community input will be needed throughout this planning process. A variety of workshops will take place throughout the City and there will be opportunities to provide feedback through online surveys.
