South Suburban celebrates the official opening of Sumac Hill Farm Overlook along with partners, the Trust for Public Land, the City of Centennial, Arapahoe County Open Spaces, and the Smedley family. The Sumac Hill Farm Overlook is the newest amenity along a stretch of the High Line Canal Trail, just north of South Suburban's Goodson Recreation Center in Centennial. The 600-square-foot platform features benches and interpretive signage. The new overlook provides an opportunity for trail users to rest and relax, while taking in scenic views of the Smedley family's horse farm below and Mount Evans area to the west.

Through the collaborative efforts of South Suburban and its partners,10 acres of land was secured as a conservation easement, meaning the land will be forever preserved, offering residents and visitors who jog, bike, and walk along the trail an opportunity to view wildlife and reconnect with nature.
