HistoryFar Horizons Park agreement by and between Jefferson County School District R-1 and North Jeffco Recreation and Park District, was approved September 26, 1968. The school District is owner of 14 acres of land at 84th Ave. and Fenton Street known as Parr Elementary School. Far Horizons Citizen's Association and Community Group proposed a map for the 4.5- acre park to include a ball diamond, soccer field and football field. North Jeffco developed the park, which was completed in 1969. This is a joint School-Park and Recreation agreement, similar to others in the Arvada area. Far Horizons Park was named for the subdivision in which it was located.
