Beautiful views

Love going and walking on the paths by the river. They have places to just sit and watch and listen to the peacefulness of the river.

I usually check TripAdvisor for attractions or hiking trails. I am not sure how I missed this. I asked the hotel manager for recommendation of hiking trail. I am sure glad that she told us about this wonderful place.

Walking or sitting or fishing or playing in the river, it is all good here. Keep your pooch on a leash and it is all good.

Beuna Vista has done incredible things with their SUP, and river parks. This was so much fun to watch and see the effort that went in to building this water event place. So many locals, and visitors flock to this... Great place

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

Unique park, as every age of people were using this section of the river. Neat waterfalls/drops and the river was fairly low when we were there, but the water was just right. I was reluctant to get in, until I watched a couple of young kids doing this, and decided, hey if they can do this, so can this ole... More

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.
