• Permits and Reservations


  • If you would like to host an event or organized activity at an Open Space park, please see below to determine the category into which your activity will fall.

    All commercial activities require a General Use Permit per Jeffco Open Space regulations:

    It shall be unlawful to conduct any commercial activity or concession, or to provide any service, product or activity for which a fee is charged, on Open Space lands, except when a valid Jefferson County Open Space Special Activity Agreement is issued. Fine: $75.00

    General Use Permit

    General uses include photography, guide services, school groups or other events that exceed groups of 15 people or more. Please see our General Use Permit page for guidelines, FAQs and the application.

    Special Activities Permit

    Special activities include tours, races, rides, walks, festivals or other events that may require exclusive use of our parks or trails. Special activities fall into two categories and will be considered by Jeffco Open Space on a case-by-case basis. Please see our Special Activities Permit page for guidelines, FAQs and the application.

    Shelter Reservations

    Shelter Reservations are available at Pine Valley Ranch Park and Hiwan Heritage Park. Our shelters are perfect for rustic weddings, reunions, birthdays or team building. Reserving a shelter guarantees exclusive use for your event. Please see our Shelter Reservations page for shelter information and applications.
