  • Very beautiful place! Beautiful trails around river with rocks and sculptures. Hard to get to with on going construction.  more »
  • Hiked around the river, met some cool dogs. Very peaceful. The snow was beautiful around all the rocks. Fed the ducks.  more »

  • This is a beautiful place to hang out with someone or just chill by yourself. I think it even has some great spots to meditate. I love strolling around this park. Also really good for taking your dog to play and run!
  • Special pace to chill out in Aspen. Noticed some dog droppings on a few occasion which is not acceptable. Probably the dirty tourists being unashamed. Locals looked like they be picking up. All in all nice place to walk and reflect. Just watch your step or it would be easily five stars. Pick up after your dogs!!!
