    North Boulder Park


    North Boulder Park is one of Boulder’s loveliest, with south-facing views of the Flatirons and a huge, sprawling lawn to run around on. It’s close to downtown Boulder and a popular picnic spot, with several tables and a restroom (open seasonally). There are also two ball diamonds, fitness equipment, a ping pong table and a half basketball court.

    A tot track for little bicyclists provides a smooth dirt track, with small rolling hills and a small wooden bridge.

    In wintertime after a good snow, this is a popular place for cross-country skiing.
