Open Space and Trails

Duck iconMission Statement


The mission of the Open Space and Trails Department is to acquire open space and create a comprehensive trail system that allows for the enjoyment of the outdoors and promotes a healthy environment for people, nature, and community.

Become a Wildlife Master



The Open Space and Trails Department is seeking volunteers for the Wildlife Master program! If you are interested in Broomfield's wildlife and would like to share your knowledge with other residents, we want you!

Wildlife Masters work from their home responding to messages retrieved from a voicemail server. They may also attend local events like Broomfield Days, the Broomfield Trail Adventure, or school events.

Please call 303.464.5803 or email for more information.
