The directions had me trippin...I had just had dinner in this shopping center the night before and I thought somehow my gps had sent me there instead of this trail. But no...it does want you to park at the shopping center. So there i am walking passed Chick Fil A and Bank of America...crossing the 177 I had just drove in on...thinking wtf? But it leads you down to Cherry Knolls Park. Once there the trail is much better. The trail follows a creek and then leads to another bigger park. Very pretty. Lots of trees. More trails branch off in other directions. Nice spot to bring friends and family.

Nice in town walk. Watch the map to get back to the park as the “loop” can be hard to follow. Great trail conditions.

Followed the direction to get there, but GPS took me to a residential area with no parks around. I searched "DeKoevend Park" and took me to the right parking spot. I expected as a hike but it was more for walking and running. Busy traffic but wide trails. Great for dog walk too.

Beautiful area, trail goes between very fancy houses, great path, quite. Not a full escape into nature bet still refreshing. No trash cans on the path or in the parking lot

The map isn't right: DeKoevend park is about 1/4 mile north of the intersection of Univ. Blvd. & Arapahoe Road, park entrance on west side of Univ. Blvd. Entrance to Goodson Rec Center is at the light. Very near Goodson Recreation Center - bathrooms, picnic shelters, playground, tennis courts & various sports fields which may or may not be busy/reserved. Bikes can be on the trail. Wide, smooth, unpaved, big cottonwood trees. Some pretty views- it's suburban/high plains, so it's not like hiking in the mountains. Easy, strollers & maybe even wheelchairs could go on this trail. Some of the facilities (tennis courts, for example) might need to be reserved through SSPR.org or in person at Goodson Rec Center.. You don't have to belong to the rec center, or live in the area to sign up to use rec center facilities - you might need to pay a fee to use some of the facilities, rates are usually very reasonable. This trail connects to a huge complex of other trails - you can make your hike any length you want. The parking lot is small and sometimes fills up - especially if there's a big sporting event. You can park at Goodson Rec Center (which has bathrooms, showers, swimming pool, vending machines, sometimes the snack bar is open & you can buy a limited selection of sandwiches / breakfast food. Other activities available as well, see sspr.org for the full offerings. We've been going to DeKoevend Park for years, it's well maintained & open year round. Suburban area, some pretty views, big trees, canal (canal usually dries up in summer). No camping.
