Chautauqua Trailhead BoulderChautauqua Park Ranger StationBoulder’s Chautauqua Park and the Boulder Flatirons are key landmarks.

They continue to be strong visual images for almost everyone who visits Boulder.

The City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks manages the Chautauqua Trailhead.

Chautauqua ParkingChautauqua GrassThere’s parking next to the ranger station, at the beginning of  the primary trails.

Those include the Chautauqua Trail, Bluebell Road (which really was a road we could drive on to the Bluebell Picnic Shelter many years ago), and the Baseline Trail towards Gregory Canyon along Baseline Road westward.

If you can’t find parking in that lot, there are other spots around the grassy area of the park to the east between the ranger cottage and the dining hall.

Chautauqua Park is a small part of a historic landmark which dates back to the very early days of the beginning of the City of Boulder.

Even way back then there were plans to preserve lands.. over one hundred years ago.

Boulder residents approved a bond issue in 1898 to purchase 80 acres of land to be used as the “Chautauqua”.

On the far east side of the park there’s also tennis courts, and a children’s playground.
