Happened on this park by chance. WOW. What a cool place. Though it is Dennis Weaver Park it is not about him. It is about leaving a prayer for something or someone. The stones give witness to the number of prayers and remain as a tribute. Pretty cool.

we found this little park totally by accident while driving around Ridgway one day! Its a very spiritual place. The first thing you see is an ENORMOUS bronze metal eagle statue at the center of the park. Now around the eagle are meticulously kept flowers and pathways, and best of all, a Prayer Garden with thousands of flat rocks/stones that... More

Absolutely beautiful spot to stop & walk down to the incredible carved Eagle. Very impressive to see and to see and leave a "prayer rock" beside the Eagle. Nice spots for a picnic by the river.

This Park is so worth the walk! The trails are great and the memorial is this very large eagle that is made of bronze. Its a must see!

Nice park and worth seeing. I would not plan a trip around it. Can see everything in 10 minutes. Might be a good place to stop and have a quick bite to eat.

The park is directly on the Uncomphagre River. A beautiful setting. If you are looking for a nice place to just chill for a bit - stop there. It isn't much for hiking unless you just want a stroll along the river. Worth a look-see.

This special park donated to the memory of Dennis Weaver, a movie & TV star and long-time resident, sits on the banks of the Uncompahgre River and offers stunning views of the Mt. Sneffels Range. It is a native American inspired spiritual park featuring an enormous sculpture of an eagle in flight atop a rock cairn. There are many small... More

In spring there are blubirds, then eagles and Canada geese. In winter, the deer are beautiful. A blessing with a breath-taking view.
