Beautifully maintained path that meanders along the creek and under Canyon road . Great for walking , running, biking and dog walking (on lead of course).

This is not the first time we have walked along the creek, often from the Dushambe Tea House to the public library with the glassed in bridge over the creek. The walking path emphasizes the quality of life that has been advanced in Boulder.

Beautiful area to people watch, skateboard, walk, run but do beware of a lot of homeless people. Also, we smelled a lot of marijuana in the area even though it’s an open area that’s very well maintained.

I only recall one fountain on the path. Most people carry their own bottled water or fill up a bottle with water. This is important if you're coming from low altitude. The climate is semi-arid and the altitude around 6,000... More
