Playground Rules - TURNBERRY PARK

The Turnberry neighborhood is a fantastic location where 475 homes are surrounded by four parks/playgrounds, 19 acres of open spaces, a community swimming pool, the Turnberry Elementary School and 1/2 mile from the Bison Ridge Recreation Center. 

The District maintains two parks/playgrounds in the Turnberry neighborhood. The playground pictured above is located on the west side of the community swimming pool center. The playground pictured on the right is located at the south end of the neighborhood at E 104th Drive and Turnberry Drive.

The park hours for the two District parks are 6:00am to 10:00pm every day.

On the east side of the Turnberry neighborhood is Turnberry Elementary School and a 9 1/2 acre park (pictured on the left) maintained by Commerce City.
