    • I would personally be very upset if any changes were made to Jackass Hill Park. The natural open space is an asset to the entire community. When my husband and I moved to Littleton in 1965, Prince St ended at Jackass Hill and the entire area was open space. I remember coming to the Jackass Hill area to survey the damage from the South Platte River flood. While so much has changed in the 50+ years since I first moved to the area, I am thankful Jackass Hill Park remains as natural open space and will continue to serve as a reminder for the future of what was once here.
