Three Places to Have Fun With Kids in Parker, CO This Summer

June 12th, 2012 | Written by | Buyers, Day off in Parker Colorado, Fun things to do, Sellers, Town of Parker

Looking for fun things to do with kids this Summer in Parker, Colorado?

Here are three easy and fun things to keep kids occupied on a budget in Parker, CO.

Movie Saturday– Cheap $5 movies on Saturday mornings at AMC Twenty Mile Theater.  Right in Parker between Twentymile and Dransfeldt Roads.

I don’t know about you but if we don’t have a baseball game early Saturday we need something to do. My wife and I are not cartoon people and our kids can only take about 30 minutes of Tom & Jerry so a real movie is always better.

Pool Day means H2O’Brien – OPEN Daily! In the center of the Town of Parker, Colorado right in O’Brien Park.

Sometimes you need a break from the same old neighborhood pool. Lets face it $4 and $5 admission fees to H2O’Brien is a deal worth taking advantage of. If you have a Parker Fieldhouse Pass or Parker Rec Center Pass I believe they work there too. This is a great escape from the neighborhood pool with lots of action and fun different things to do.

Castlewood Canyon. 20 minute drive south on Parker Road or Highway 83. You pay by the carload or free entry if you purchased a Colorado State Park Pass.

If playing in the open space of your neighborhood is getting old try a hike in Castlewood Canyon. There are miles of easy trails, a nice cool creek to dip your feet in, a playground, picnic areas and even a covered picnic area. NOTE: The covered picnic area is sometimes reserved for parties so if you need or want the covered area you may want to call them to see if it’s open. There are a few shaded picnic tables around the park if you don’t necessarilly need the entire picnic shelter.

To be honest the kids like picnicking down by the creek on a big rock with their shoes off and feet hanging in the water.
