We Want To Boast About Our PROST


The Board of Trustees recently received an update on the soon to be published Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails (PROST) Master Plan. And because the PROST update contained so much good news, we thought we’d boast a bit and share a sneak preview with you.

Did you know Erie has over 1,200 Acres of Open Space? It’s true. Approximately 87% of our Open Space portfolio is uniquely Erie with the remainder held in a conservation easement with Boulder County.

Did you know Erie has over 40 miles of trails? Yup. We do.
