Cottonwood Park in Parker – 10M Trophy Series Course

Cottonwood Park is easy to get to…but we need your help with Parking.  You MAY park this year at the park’s parking lot (by the “Registration” marker on the map).  We have 50 spaces there.  The Parker Rec District wants the main parking accessible to residents during our race, so we will block off some spaces with cones.  Please do not park in the coned off areas!  If the start area is full, please park on Cottonwood near Parker (by the “Runner Parking” markers) but NOT in the shopping center.  Please help us satisfy those rules and keep our invitation to run here – thanks!

Cottonwood Park is just north of E470 and Parker Road.  From central Denver, your best bet to get there quickly and avoid E470 tolls is to take I25 south to Arapahoe, go east on Arapahoe to Parker Rd, and take Parker Rd south to Cottonwood Dr.  Make a right on Cottonwood Way, then a final left on Snowberry Way.

If you park near the shopping area, to reach the start, walk north up Cottonwood Way past the parking areas, then turn left/west on Snowberry Way.  The park is 2 blocks west of Cottonwood Way.
