Chautauqua Park information
Lonely Planet review
This historic landmark park is not just the gateway to Boulder’s most magnificent slab of open space adjoining the iconic Flatirons, the wide, lush lawn attracts picnicking families, sunbathers, Frisbee folk, and students from nearby CU. It also gets copious hikers, climbers and trail runners.
Once an important site for the inspired rural educational organization, the Chautauqua Movement, these days the park encompasses lodgings, a good restaurant and an auditorium where world-class musicians perform each summer.
