City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks
Today, Boulder citizens enjoy over 45,000 acres of city open space land in and around the city. Some of the land is in agricultural production, preserving the historic cultural landscape of Boulder County while keeping the land open for wildlife and passive recreational uses. In addition to the aesthetic pleasure of Boulder's Open Space & Mountain Parks, an extensive trail system is available for hikers and horseback riders. Bicyclists enjoy riding on designated trails. Picnicking and fishing areas also appeal to area residents, as well as a variety of free educational programs conducted by OSMP staff and volunteers.
With annual visitation of 5.3 million per year, maintenance is becoming increasingly important to preserve the quality of Boulder's Open Space & Mountain Parks. More informaiton on outdoor life and opportunies in the City of Boulder at City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks
