Scott Carpenter Park & Pool

Park in Boulder

Scott Carpenter Park is named after Scott Carpenter, one of the original 'Mercury Seven' astronauts and a Boulder son. Families love the playground’s rocket-shaped climbing structure and the outdoor pool and waterslide, while athletes come for Boulder’s only 50m lanes. In winter the contoured hills (once the city dump!) are popular for sledding. Catch the Boulder Creek Bike Path here too.
