This charming town provides it all. Take a stroll around Main Street and enjoy all that Parker has to offer including quaint coffee shops, paint your own pottery and charming hair salons like Me Me Me Salon. Let the fun begin at Parker Days! In the summer, downtown Parker’s Main Street closes off and people come from all around to ride the rides, the Ferris wheel, eat great local foods and listen to live bands. It is fun for all. Cool off in the summer at H2O'Brien Outdoor Pool featuring two 182' water slides, a waterworks play structure, a spray garden, sprays and geysers, a circulation and lap pool, a concession area and a shade pavilion.
