“We loved this beautiful place”

The John Denver Sanctuary
Ranked #6 of 111 things to do in Aspen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

What a treat to wander through plush green areas filled with huge boulders and rocky paths beside a creek and smaller waterfalls and streams throughout. The song lyrics and sayings etched on the rocks were delightful to read. Go on a nice day so you can take your time. Great place to take a picnic as benches are provided.

John Denver’s lyrics are etched on boulders throughout a grassy maze. Aspen breezes are warmed by the Colorado sun and seasonal flowers dot this tranquil paradise.

Very peaceful park by the river to stroll around and take in the views, continue on in to the town for coffee.

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!
