The community has three ticketing options for carriage rides this holiday season. Tickets are limited.
Carriage Rides will be offered as a non-stop loop from Discovery Park and the Douglas County Libraries in Parker to O’Brien Park. The rides will be approximately 25 minutes and will travel through downtown Parker on Mainstreet where patrons can enjoy the new lights on Mainstreet, along with the beauty of O’Brien Park.
This year’s carriage rides will feature larger vehicles, one additional vehicle and longer hours for the three days of the rides. Even if you don’t want to ride a carriage, come down and enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays at Discovery Park.

Once you sign up, you will receive an email confirmation. Please bring your email confirmation to the ride station you are signed up for and present it to the volunteer at the station. Please be at the station 10 minutes prior to your ride time. The Town of Parker and our local merchants do such a great job of dressing up our hometown for the holidays and this is a great way to take it all in. From O’Brien Park to the historic Twenty Mile building to the local businesses your eyes will be filled with delight and Christmas cheer.
The carriage rides take you on a relaxing ride through the entire Historic District. They are a great way to share with friends and family or have a relaxing or romantic evening.
In addition to the carriage rides, there are several other activities for your entertainment:
- Visit with Santa and make sure he’s got the right gift on his list
- Take advantage of specials from local merchants & restaurants
- Other local entertainment to be announced
