Chautauqua Park

Embark on gentle or rigorous hikes and photograph native wildlife at this popular city park. See cultural performances and learn about a historic education movement.

Get out and about to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature at Chautauqua Park. This 40-acre (16-hectare) open space in the foothills of the Flatirons rock formations encompasses hiking trails, tennis courts and a children's playground.

Take one of the numerous trails that pass through meadows and mountainous landscapes. There are routes for all ages and ability levels. Energetic hikers will want to head for the Mesa Trail that extends for nearly 7 miles (11 kilometers) through forests, fields and over hilly terrain. For some outstanding views, walk along the Third Flatiron Climbing Access Trail. Bring your camera with you in case you see some of the local wildlife, including mountain lions, mule deer and black bears. For the full list of trails, visit Chautauqua Park's official website.

If all you want to do is relax, lie down in a meadow with a book or close your eyes and listen to the sounds of nature.

Chautauqua Park is a place of historic significance. Chautauqua was America’s first mass adult-education movement, a campaign to provide summer educational and cultural activities to working and middle-class adults. In the late 1890s, this area was chosen as the location of a summer school for teachers. Today, it is one of the few remaining chautauquas in the United States.

In the middle of the park, find the Victorian-era Dining Hall. This is an excellent place to stop for a meal or refreshments after a hike. If the weather is favorable, sit at one of the tables on the wraparound veranda.

While you are here, check out the performance schedule at the Chautauqua Auditorium. The venue hosts a variety of cultural activities throughout the year, including the Colorado Music Festival. This classical music program starts at the end of June and continues for six weeks.

Chautauqua Park is open every day and located less than 2 miles (3 kilometers) from downtown Boulder. There are free parking spaces inside the park and in nearby streets. Consider staying overnight in one of the park’s lodges or wooden cottages.
