This is a good park for large area sporting events (Frisbee, soccer, baseball) or just needing to run around. There is NO PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT.

At the end of Main St, but you have to look for it. Well worth it. Nice little park with a walk along the creek or river, with benches. We were there in the fall and the leaves were beautiful, rustling in the gentle breeze in the bright Colorado sunshine. Heavenly!

Our family enjoyed the park especially the river walk. We had dinner at Eddy's, then coffee and gelatos from Midlands while scrolling along the river.

Lots of trails and paths to walk, hike, or ride. The city has done a great job of setting up this entire area to spend the day outdoors. Nice shopping and housing village by it as well.

We have done a couple of runs where we ended up pulling out here. It is free parking, restrooms etc... The place is clean and maintained well. There are bike and hike routes that seemed great surrounded with awesome scenery

We enjoyed hiking in the park and also sitting on a bench by the river and watching whitewater paddleboarders, kayakers, and rafters go by! Will explore more areas of the park the next time we are in the area.

This park was gorgeous. The picturesque river running below the easy trails was beautiful. My daughter and I had a great time exploring. If you are in the area it is definitely worth your time to check it out.
