Gift Fund Donations


Cherry Hills Village is an oasis of semi-rural living in the midst of the Denver metro area hustle and bustle. Villagers have long prized our open spaces, trails, amazing view corridors, equestrian facilities and outdoor recreation opportunities. Cherry Hills Village’s Parks, Trails & Recreation Commission is working hard to maintain, enhance and grow this system.  With this in mind, and with the understanding that we need to work together to reach those goals, the Cherry Hills Village Gift Fund is being revived.


The Gift Fund was established several decades ago to respond to residents who wished to contribute specific gifts or general cash donations to better our parks and trails system. Thanks to the Gift Fund, trails have benches and trash cans and our equestrian rings have equipment that is used and appreciated by many. While some donors preferred to make a gift for a particular item, many donors choose to make a cash gift, noting that it be used in whatever manner Parks and Trails sees fit.


As we revive this tradition, the Parks, Trails & Recreation Commission wants you to know that we are appreciative of gifts and donations in any amount. Donations may be applied to a specified item, current project or collectively pooled so that together they have a greater impact on our future parks system. With our citizens' support, we can preserve what we have, enhance the outdoor experience, and make things even better for the residents of Cherry Hills.


Please join us in enhancing Cherry Hills Village. Participate with your families, neighbors, friends, clubs and businesses to make our community a truly great one. Thank you for your support.


How Can You Help?

There are many ways to enhance the parks and trails system for our current and future generations.


Donations of Land
Preserving the Village’s unique, semi-rural character in the midst of urban Denver is one of Parks and Trails’ main goals. Help us grow the number of open spaces, view corridors and parks within the Village by donating space for a trail easement or open space. Please inquire with Parks and Trails about your ideas, location and plans.


Pocket Parks or Neighborhood Parks
Providing a place for trail users to sit and relax or providing a small park for neighbors to gather and children to play makes a community great. Could your neighborhood be enhanced by the addition of such a place?

Please speak with the Village Parks and Trails Administrator about how to facilitate your gift of space for everyone to enjoy.


Infrastructure Items
As we focus on ways to improve our parks and trails, you can help by donating funds to pay for benches, trash cans, drinking fountains, trees, equestrian arena needs, annual and perennial flowers to be planted at the City Center or city entrance points, and more. Any amount is appreciated.

Acknowledging Your Gift

Please work with the department to ensure that your message will fit within the confines of the plaque.
