Due to ongoing high fire danger conditions, Jeffco Open Space maintains Stage 2 fire restrictions year-round. This includes:
Only devices that are liquid fueled with an on/off switch, such as gas grills and stoves, are allowed. These devices should only be used in developed areas that are completely clear of vegetation for at least a six-foot diameter.
JCOS is committed to keeping our community and parks fire safe. As land managers it is our responsibility to practice proactive fire mitigation in partnership with local fire districts, agencies, and neighborhoods. Jefferson County conditions are such that any accidental spark or unattended campfire could result in catastrophic loss and danger for the land, wildlife, and residents. The risk is too great and far outweighs the enjoyment that campfires or smoking within our parks can offer.
