Wonderful treasure somewhat hidden from main drag. Seek it out--it's worth it. Wonderful trails to walk on along the river. Great park area and place to relax. A few great shops and a couple of nice places to eat.

We stopped at this park to eat our picnic lunch after our rafting trip. Nice park and views of the river. There are also places to purchase food if you didn't pack.

Very cute town, sort of college age kids but cute. Great food trucks, climbing wall and boulder park with outstanding man views right by the river. We went for lunch then hung out for a few hours! And except for food it is free

Very relaxing, food for purchase, big boulder with hand grips for the kids to play on, picnic tables, coffee shop on corner, fun to watch kayakers on the river. Great place for a picnic or to just relax!

We've been to this park now several times and it's still a favorite for the kids and us to come back to. There is a nice skate park, walking trails, river access, bouldering, and of course kayaking. It's an easy park to get to with some awesome picnic locations. If you are coming here to see rafters, you most likely... More

We weren't expecting much from the hiking trails, since they are so close to town, but they were one of our favorite Colorado hikes! Easy, but with geographical interest. Incredible views of the Arkansas River, the town of Buena Vista, and huge mountains. My son was able to do some bouldering. Love this town!

Nice place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Small town feel! Nice people. Great food surrounding the area. River rafting for all who enjoy the sport. Would recommend for outdoor enthusiasts

We had one person in our party who couldn't handle much elevation gain, and she went on the river walk, along the river. Two of us went on steeper trails, that climb up and away from the river, up to an old railroad bed, that affords gorgeous views of the Collegiate Peaks. It's got informative kiosks that teach you about... More

We wanted to visit the park to watch the rafters, but weren't allowed to take our dog into the park. We didn't stay very long. Watched rafters from the bridge long enough to get some pictures and left.
