We were spending some time in Aspen and just enjoying the town when we found this spot quite by accident. My husband and I had enjoyed John Denver's songs over the years and we saw him in concert when he came to our city. So the stones arranged along this babbling stream inscribed with the words he wrote and sang was a wonderful experience. There couldn't have been a better way to pay tribute to this man who gave his gift to the world.

If you are a John Denver fan you have to visit. Even if you are not you still have to visit. Beautiful park. Great design concept. If you are lucky you might get to see the frequent kayakers that descend the creek that goes through the park. Have fun!

As you hike the Rio Grande Trail. Nice idea, the boulders with Denver’s songs chiseled in.
Great place to sit and contemplate his lyrics with the river in the background. Ideal in non snowy conditions as some stones will be covered.

Really nice in winter but in summer must be awesome. The words of Denver’s songs are etched onto big rocks - a stream and lovely views of the mountains - and it’s free!
