Although Parker is considered part of Denver’s suburban community, it is located 20 miles southeast of the city. The distance, however, is not a deterrent, as Parker is a quickly growing community in popular Douglas County, and boasts plenty of its own arts, recreation and cultural attractions, while still offering a rather rural suburban alternative.
As Parker real estate, and the surrounding town, continue to expand and enhance with modern architecture and amenities, the city also successfully maintains its charm and small town feel that is so important to its residents. Parker’s downtown Mainstreet Center retains many of its original buildings and boasts several boutiques, one-of-a-kind shops, and family-owned restaurants.
