Highlands Ranch, Co., a suburb of Denver, was first settled around 1860, most notably by Rufus Clark, the so-called Potato King. One of the area's earliest philanthropists, he donated money and land to what became some of the area's finest parks.
Highlands Ranch boasts 19 parks, several of which include off-leash areas for dogs. More than 60 miles of trails allow for running, biking or simply a short stroll. In addition to the trail and park system, Highlands Ranch has set aside more than 2,000 acres of undeveloped land for exploring. Many other activities including inline skating - either on the bike trails or in the inline hockey arena - await visitors here. For the younger traveler, two public skate parks and a myriad of sporting opportunities abound at the parks scattered around the city.
