Ketring Park, Gallup Gardens, and Gallup Park (hereinafter referred to as “Ketring-Gallup Park”) comprise approximately 55.5 acres collectively around Bemis Public Library and the Littleton Museum, about a mile southeast of Historic Downtown Littleton. These parks feature passive and active spaces, Ketring Lake (also known as Gallup Reservoir), a mature tree canopy, rich vistas, public artworks, pedestrian trails, and multiple parking areas. 

The City of Littleton, in partnership with South Suburban Parks and Recreation (SSPRD), identified the need for this overarching master plan of all three parks, which will serve as a guiding document in realizing a more comprehensive vision that celebrates and fosters the cultural amenities of the site. Based on the input gathered from the community, the master plan will provide long-term goals and actionable strategies with detailed, prioritized improvement projects.
