Park Visitors MUST be Vigilant During Heightened Fire Danger

The recent snow was helpful, but more warm, dry weather is in the extended forecast. Jeffco Open Space, CO (JCOS) is closely monitoring the nearby fires and associated fire risks with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, fire rescue agencies and other public land managers. While our parks remain open, visitors MUST use extreme caution while enjoying the outdoors. It is critically important that visitors adhere to all Park Regulations and report violations, especially those related to fire safety. If you see potential fire safety risks or violations of fire restrictions or closures, please report them immediately by calling 303.980.7300. https://www.jeffco.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1395
