The plaza in the centre of town. A beautiful place where people gather next to the timber frame pedestrian bridge. There flowers, a fountain, farmers market, concerts and a little outdoor pub steps away.

The square, the landscaping, the beautiful flowers, and the pedestrian bridge make for a lovely stroll. The whole town of Golden is a picture postcard everywhere you look, but the square and the bridge are especially picturesque.
