(CBS4) – Officials in the town of Parker are celebrating their No. 1 ranking in a study released earlier this month titled “2019’s Best Places To Raise A Family In Colorado.” The Douglas County town posted a blog entry about their big win, saying they have fun family activities all throughout the year.

Parker got high marks in WalletHub’s study for its affordability, education, safety and socio-economics. A total of 61 municipalities in Colorado were analyzed in the study, and the top 20 were all located on Colorado’s Front Range.
