Arvada's 150-plus-mile trail network consists of Primary, Local and Regional Trails with both paved and soft surfaces. Trails are suitable for non-motorized recreational enjoyment as well as commuting. More information on the City's trail network can be found in the sections below. 

Open Space 

The Arvada Parks and Open Space division maintains more than 3,200 acres of non-irrigated land throughout the City. Each growing season, our parks staff mows approximately 1,350 acres of open space areas bordered by hundreds of private properties.
