  • This large park has a number of components to it, including an inland playground. The portion I am reviewing consists of a bridge across the river, hiking on the far side, a place to put in small wate...  more »

  • We stopped by the park while exploring BV. There was a man with his son fishing, many others riding bikes or just standing in the refreshing chilly river on a hot day. Very active area with clean rest...  more »

  • This is a wonderful whitewater park. The river was a bit low when I visited, but some features were still really fun despite the low flow - good design. Locals roll into the Staircase Wave each afternoon - a really cool local vibe with SUPers, and surfers, and kayakers sharing the fun.
  • Very nice park, and the disc golf course is finally ready to go! It's right next to river access and has a nice soccer field, two baseball fields, a playground, a small bike pump track, large dog park, a skate park, and a couple of restrooms. All very well kept.
  • We just happened upon the hiking trails here as we discovered Buena Vista for the first time. It was a nice way to spend an hour on a Sunday morning. The trails are easy, clean, and have pretty views of the river and the Mosquito Ridge mountains beyond. Very pretty, historic town. I bet the river is really rushing in the spring but it was nice to know we could still do a short hike in the winter! Lots of people out with the same idea too, but the trails weren't overcrowded at all. Would recommend!
  • Maintained nicely, good clean trails, beautiful water, volleyball, and pump tracks. There are public restrooms, dog disposal bags, and interesting historical information.
  • I love the hiking trails here and the river is beautiful. You need to know that there are almost always thunderstorms in the afternoon so get your hiking in during the morning hours.
