The Open Space Program began in 1972 when the citizens of Jefferson County, Colorado believed so strongly in the need to preserve open space that they voted to tax themselves one-half of one percent on sales to fund planning, acquiring, maintaining and preserving open space properties.

In 1980, an election expanded the use of Open Space funds to allow for the construction, maintenance and management of park and recreation facilities. Expanded use of the Open Space funds has enabled the program to provide campgrounds at White Ranch and Reynolds Parks, multiple sports facilities at Clement Park, as well as assisting in the development of several publicly owned athletic fields, playgrounds, swimming pools, golf courses, picnic shelters, restrooms, recreation centers, regional parks and trails.

In 1998, voters in Jefferson County were asked to authorize $160 million in general obligation bonds to fund acquisition of priority properties. The issue passed with over 70% of the voters supporting the aggressive acquisition plan.
