Kiowa Creek North Open Space

Kiowa Creek North open space. Trees line a grassy plain.We took your feedback from the Kiowa Creek North Open Space Master Plan and are busy refining our design development plans for improvements at Kiowa Creek North Open Space, a 265-acre property located roughly two miles south of the Town of Bennett in eastern Arapahoe County. The master plan, adopted by the Board of County Commissioners in 2022 following extensive public input, outlines a blueprint for developing the property for public recreation and enjoyment, with minimal impact on the Kiowa Creek corridor and its thriving wildlife habitat.  

New amenities will include: looped multi-use trails, dedicated equestrian trails with challenge course and equestrian parking, mountain-bike trails and features, archery range, picnic areas, outdoor classroom, site overlooks, parking areas, and ecological site restoration. See current design concept.


The site was purchased by Arapahoe County in 2009 specifically for passive use recreation and to provide an extensive trail system, educational opportunities focused on preservation and restoration of ecological habitats, and neighborhood trail connections.  

Arapahoe County is committed to preserving and protecting the natural resources while providing access and enjoyment of this unique open space in the eastern riparian floodplain just south of Bennett.
