Staunton State Park Opens to Public in May 2013
On May 18 the State of Colorado welcomed Staunton State Park as its newest State Park. The park ranges in elevation from 8,100 feet along Elk Creek to 10,240 feet near the summit of Black Mountain and embodies an exceptional cross-section of native Colorado ecosystems. The 3,700-acre property is located just outside the Denver metro area. The Lottery is proud of the significant role we played with more than $11.44 million dollars to making the park a reality. Staunton State Park has a rich history and the Colorado Parks and Wildlife's website provides interesting reading about how the lands were donated and acquired to build Staunton.
