Adventure Description

Adventure Description

A day trip to Boulder is a must-not-miss on a Centennial State itinerary. This lively city with a small town vibe is home of the largest university in Colorado, an artful farm-to-table culinary scene, and immediate access to the iconic Flatirons. Just a short walk from the famous Pearl Street, and immediately before the entrance into Boulder Canyon, Eben G. Fine Park provides a haven against hot summer days and a colorful walk on a brisk fall one.

Chock-full of amenities, the park offers picnic areas (which may be reserved in advance, call 303.441.3440, or utilized on a first-come-first-served basis) and public bathrooms, several miles of paved walkway paralleling the bubbling Boulder Creek, and sandy play areas for little ones. A small bridge over the creek connects the park to the Red Rocks and Settler's Park Open Spaces and Mount Sanitas area directly to the north. As parking is limited, finding parking in the neighborhoods near Pearl Street or Arapahoe Avenue is recommended.

A popular whitewater play park built for kayakers begins at the park, enticing tubers as well. This stretch can experience extremely heavy traffic in the summertime. As always, it is emphatically recommended that tubers and swimmers alike recognize when the spring flows are too high to enjoy safely and use discretion and safety flotation devices while in the river.
