Beat the Heat: Get Some Boulder Creek Time!

tubing-down-creek-1024x768

Want to beat the heat? Jump In – It’s Boulder Creek Time!

Enjoy some of the most refreshing water we have in town along Boulder Creek! We are so lucky in Boulder to have the Boulder Creek running right through town. Hit some of the hot spots to go tubing, wading, swimming, kayaking, or just sit next to the water to enjoy the sights and sounds. To get the best access to Boulder Creek try starting at Eben G. Fine Park at the west end of Arapahoe Ave. You can park at the Boulder Public Library [you do have to pay here] where you can walk right over to a beautiful shady spot near the creek, or find it anywhere along the Boulder Bike Path.
