Voice an opinion on recreation at Rueter-Hess Reservoir at Feb. 27 open house

Rueter-Hess Reservoir

Living in Colorado has several perks. Some of those involve wonderful recreation opportunities. Hiking, biking and exploring the outdoors is a way of life. Now, Castle Rock residents have the opportunity to voice their opinions regarding recreational opportunities at Rueter-Hess Reservoir.

The primary purpose of the reservoir is to store and provide safe, clean drinking water for the entire region. Recently, plans have been in the works to transform the reservoir into something more.

The Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority was created to oversee the master planning process and explore possible recreational amenities at the reservoir. The Town along with the Parker Water and Sanitation District, and other regional partners including Douglas County, the cities of Lone Tree and Castle Pines and the Town of Parker, have launched a public process to develop an overall plan.

The first step of the process gathered more than 4,000 responses to an online survey. The landscape architecture firm now has some initial concept alternatives, and public input is needed to determine which alternatives are the most popular.

An open house is being held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27 at the Recreation Center, 2301 N. Woodlands Blvd. Residents are being encouraged to attend and learn more about the project, possible recreational options and to voice an opinion on those options. An online survey is also available. Take the survey and get more information about the entire project at The survey will be available through Tuesday, March 1.
