Its 36 acres are also home to an outdoor swimming pool, a kids fishing pond, two playgrounds, multiple sports courts and even a Frisbee golf course. Plus, the park offers a campground and hosts many of Telluride's festivals and events, including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. Town Park also offers wintertime activities like sledding, ice skating and cross-country skiing.
Travelers love camping at Town Park's clean and well-maintained campground; most visitors say the park's standout feature is its breathtaking mountain vistas. Additionally, many praise the park's ample kids amenities and highly recommend visiting when a festival is taking place on-site.
Town Park is free to visit 24 hours a day. But remember, additional charges may apply for festivals hosted here. Complimentary parking is available on-site, and the park is within walking distance of downtown Telluride's shops and restaurants.
