HistoryS.K. Development Co. and City of Arvada entered into an agreement for Shadow Mountain Subdivision, Filing one , on September 17, 1979. Filing two, January 3, 1980 for a bridge constructed over Ralston Creek on Eldridge. Filing three for 135 acre-sites, equal to six per cent of land dedication requirement on an existing 100-year flood plain. The City's portion of Open Space funds, approved by the Jefferson County Commissioners, were used for the completion of Shadow Mountain Park and extension of Ralston Creek Trail in 1986. The park was probably named for the shadow cast over the area by North Table Mountain.
