In a state famous for its wide-open and scenic landscapes, nature close to home remains elusive for many city dwellers. In Denver for example, The Trust for Public Land works with communities and partner organizations to reverse a slipping ratio of parks per resident, and to improve the city's park system, which is well below average for its size. As the national leader in creating parks in cities, we are committed to protecting and creating parks, natural areas, and trails in our urban communities, particularly in Denver and along the Front Range.
